WATERTOWN – On Sunday May 12, Watertown residents will once again join together in the Mothers’ Day Walk for Peace, supporting the Louis D.

A free bus will leave Watertown for the walk in Dorchester at 7:15am sharp from First Parish in Watertown, 35 Church Street. Arrive at 7am to join a gathering circle before we leave.

Why WW4P is important. The Mother’s Day Walk for Peace is sponsored by the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute, a center for healing and teaching, supporting those who have lost loved ones to violence, and working with young people to teach the ways of peace.  It was founded by Chaplain Clementina Chery, the mother of Louis D. Brown, who was killed by random gunfire in 1993. The Institute has earned a reputation as an innovative leader for peace.

Watertown Walks for Peace is sponsored by:  World in Watertown; Watertown Citizens for Peace, Justice, and the Environment; First Parish of Watertown; Church of the Good Shepherd Watertown; and Progressive Watertown.
