May 4-10 is Peace Week!

To draw attention to Peace Week and the 2015 Mother's Day Walk for Peace, the Lenny Zakim Bridge will be lit up purple May 4-10, making the connection that violence occurs daily on the streets of Boston and peace is needed NOW. 

Peace Week aims to recognize and activate the potential of Boston Public Schools and all students to be peacemakers and positively impact the climate of classrooms. Peace Week curriculum will give participants the opportunity to practice and commit to the seven Principles of Peace: love, unity, faith, hope, courage, justice, and forgiveness. Peace Week was designed to center students who have been deeply affected by murder, trauma, grief, and loss.  We have free PEACE Curricula available for Elementary, Middle, and High Schools.
