Increase your impact by asking your friends and family to walk with you and support the Peace Institute’s work to transform society’s response to homicide. We encourage Walk Teams to set a fundraising goal of $1,000. 




The Mother’s Day Walk is the Peace Institute’s most important fundraising event. We’re asking your business or organization to invest in community-based solutions to a complex problem. In 2020, our goal is to finally break $400,000!
