Newton woman recruiting for Mother’s Day Walk for Peace

WALK FOR PEACE: For the fourth year, Josie Greene of Newton plans to celebrate Mother’s Day by participating in the 3.6-mile Mother’s Day Walk for Peace in Boston to benefit the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute. On March 15, from 7 to 11 p.m. in Newton, she and husband Glenn Asch will host a rally for prospective walkers and others interested in joining the effort to eliminate youth violence.

The event will begin with live music provided by Zumix, a nonprofit in East Boston that empowers youth through music and the arts. At 8 p.m., there will be a short program featuring Tina Chery, who founded the Dorchester-based Louis D. Brown Peace Institute after her 14-year-old son was gunned down in 1993, and Visions Inc., a Roxbury-based nonprofit that is developing youth leaders through its Legacy Project. The second half of the event will include food, drinks, and a DJ.
