Neighborhood Walks for Peace | Sept - Oct 2

Walk together and help disrupt the violence in Boston.
The recent weeks have been very difficult for many of our neighbors and neighborhoods. At the request of Commissioner Evans, various community members came together on August 17 to talk and work towards disrupting and ultimately stopping the violence in our city. 
"There were many forces that drove Boston's violence dramatically downward in the 1990s. One was a lot people working hard, together. The other was people praying. In the Jewish and Christian traditions we are told to 'Seek the peace of the city. Pray ... for it.' These walks are seeking peace. As we walk many of us will pray in our hearts for peace. Please join us in this and continue to find ways, many ways, to build relationships with and create opportunity for the young people of our City." -Rev. Mark Scott
