Our team is an inclusive and diverse group of students and allies from Lexington, Massachusetts. Through events and advocacy, our goal is to promote discussion, build empathy, and demand common sense laws that will reduce the threat of gun violence in all communities, schools, and homes.

We were honored to host Chaplain Chery recently for a Forum on Gun Violence Prevention and look forward to joining her for this inspiring event!

Please donate now to help us reach our fundraising goal!

ABOUT 2018 Mother's Day Walk for Peace

The 22nd Annual Mother’s Day Walk for Peace: “Dignity and Compassion for All”

The Mother’s Day Walk for Peace is a celebration of our potential to create more peaceful communities. Every year families from across the state and region walk together toward peace. Join us on Mother’s Day to demand dignity and compassion for all families impacted by murder.  

The Mother’s Day Walk is also the Peace Institute’s most important fundraising event. We’re asking you to invest in community-based solutions to a complex problem. In 2018, our goal is to raise $400,000 for our critical programs and services.

Invest in peace this Mother’s Day - Sunday May 13, 2018!

The Mother's Day Walk for Peace started in 1996 so mothers of murdered children could receive support and love from their neighbors. Twenty-two years later, the Mother’s Day Walk continues to be a powerful way to honor our loved ones who have been murdered and embrace our partners in peacemaking.

All walkers must register. Registration cost this year is $10 per walker, however no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Registration fees go to help us reach our goal of $400,000 to sustain our programs and services.
