Help Save the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute


As some people might already know from this Globe article (or just heard around the neighborhood), the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute is one of many community programs that got whacked in this last round of state budget cuts.

In short: the Fields Corner institute has for nearly 15 years been a place where desperate families seek emotional and financial support when senseless violence hits home, and it needs roughly $75,000 to be saved.

While there certainly needs to be discussion about why programs such as this lose out to less important, less urban budgetary items, right now the main concern is to raise funds. For that reason the kind folks from H. Levenbaum Real Estate in Dorchester are throwing a fundraiser.

Next Tuesday, December 2, at the Blarney Stone (1505 Dorchester Ave.) you have a chance to help out and drink up from 7pm to 9pm. Any and all donations are welcome. For more info on other ways to give click here.
