Thousands of parents all across the country will be walking with local Moms Demand Action chapters in their towns on Saturday, May 11th to honor the eight mothers who lose children to gun violence each day in America. The Greater Boston Area walk will take place around Jamaica Pond at 3:30pm for an opportunity to meet other gun safety advocates who are demanding action in the greater Boston area. We will meet at the rotunda. During the walk, participants are asked to carry eight flowers to honor the eight mothers who lose children to gun violence each day in America. Each event will culminate in a quiet place while a mom reads the Mother’s Bill of Rights aloud.
Special guest speaker: Senator Katherine Clark
“I am honored to join this group as we come together to remember the children killed by gun violence in our communities and across this nation. As a mother of three sons, I cannot bring myself to imagine the heartbreak that their parents and families carry with them on Mother’s Day and every day,” said Senator Katherine Clark. “Our best hope is to work together to develop, implement and demand sensible gun laws now. In so doing, we honor the memory of those lost and help to create a world worthy of all our children.”
Anne and Linda at GAGv have teamed up with Moms Demand Action members to host a walk on Cape Cod on Saturday at 3:30pm as well! They will meet at the corner of Union Street and Route 6A to the Optimist Cafe and back in Yarmouth, MA.
We hope you can all join us.
