The Boston Ten Point Coalition and the MBTA have launched the 2009 Summer Season of Peace to send a cultural message of the need to reduce violence in the community. The Season of Peace is a call for kids to resist violence and enjoy their summer, like the “good ole days” many adults remember.
The Season of Peace movement is a multi-media, grass roots campaign to promote peace through neighborhood walks, cookouts, and night games such as basketball, swimming, and board games at the YMCA.
Chief Paul MacMillan of the MBTA Transit Police said, "The Season of Peace campaign is another example of everyone working together to make the MBTA and the community as safe as possible."
The summer Season of Peace runs July 4th through September 21st.
To volunteer, donate or get more information, please call (617) 524-4331.
