PINK STANDS FOR Pain Is Not Kind...but PEACE Is! TEAM BOSTON PINK is sponsored by The Self-love Recovery Initiative. This team will empower women and others to support survivors. Our goal is to support lone walkers with love and kindness and build a team when the survivor can not, and we will all walk together in BOSTON PINK! Because April 18th is the 12th anniversary of my brother Eric Johnson's murder I want to do something special to honor his memory that will help other survivors. In 2006 3 weeks after his murder I walked alone in tears in the rain. WEAR BOSTON PINK (Hot Pink) T-shirt with loved ones picture , jacket, hat, ribbon etc. and meet us at one of the entry points.

Every year in the United States, approximately 15,000 people are murdered. For every homicide victim, there are at least 10 immediate people directly impacted by that loss. It is safe to say each year there are at least 150,000 new survivors of homicide victims dealing with the emotional, physical and financial stress of losing a loved one to a traumatic death such as murder. This is not including extended family members, classmates/colleagues, teachers/students, entire communities. Nor does this number include families who are impacted by a loved one committing a murder. Together we can heal and have an impact.
Rise Up! Walk with us. The Annual Mother’s Day Walk for Peace started in 1996 so mothers of murdered children could receive support and love from their neighbors. Twenty-three 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. The Mother’s Day Walk is also the Peace Institute’s most important fundraising event. We hope you will help us raise our goal of $400,000 so we can continue to work to tip the scale toward justice for families and communities that are stigmatized by murder.
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.
