Now recruiting ride marshals for the Mother’s Day Walk for Peace

We are recruiting ride marshals for the Mother's Day Walk for Peace on May 14, 2023. Please see details below:

The Mother's Day Walk for Peace (MDW4P) is a beloved 27-year-long Boston tradition and celebration of our potential to create more peaceful communities. It is the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute’s (LDBPI) largest fundraising event to grow and sustain their services, advocacy and training. LDBPI's goal is to empower survivors, Generation Peace and communities impacted by murder, trauma, grief and loss to cultivate cycles of peace and healing. The 2023 theme is "Cultivating Cycles of Peace.” In our society, we are constantly looped into cycles of violence that overshadow the transformative power of peace. Like a blooming flower, cycles of peace flourish when carefully cultivated. We have the agency to cultivate these cycles by empowering survivors, supporting returning citizens and their families and investing in Generation Peace.

Here's the link for ride marshal registration.

There will also be a virtual marshal training on Wednesday, May 10th from 6 to 8 PM. The intention of this space will be bring all of the volunteer bike marshals up to speed on the route, outline responsibilities and expectations for day of the walk, and offer any soft-training that the volunteer bike marshals may need.
