ABOUT 2020 Mothers Day Walk for Peace

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 or 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. 

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-four years later, the Mother’s Day Walk for Peace 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 for Peace  is also the Peace Institute’s largest fundraising event. We hope you will help us raise our goal of $400,000. This way toward healing!

Important COVID-19 Pandemic Update:

The Mother’s Day Walk for Peace will still take place, as a virtual walkathon. While we may not be able to gather physically on Mother’s Day, you have proven year after year how deeply you care about the communities we serve -- Survivors of Homicide Victims, their families, and neighbors. Your help ensures that the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute’s critical services, advocacy and training continue to meet the immediate and evolving needs of survivors. When you reach your goal it ensures that the Peace Institute has the financial resources necessary to transform society’s response to homicide during this unprecedented crisis.

Registration cost this year is $20 per person, 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 services, advocacy and training.
