    The Garden of Peace -- A Symbol For Hope and Peace

    The Garden of Peace is a memorial commemorating victims of homicide and a living reminder of the impact of violence. It is a visual testament to the need for eliminating violence. The Garden is a symbol of hope for peace and renewal in our lives, our community, and the world.

    The mission of the Garden of Peace, Inc. is to create and maintain a memorial to victims of homicide that, through its location in Boston's Government Center:

    • raises the awareness of our citizens, public officials, and business leaders of the human cost of violence 
    • stands as a symbol of connection for the many and diverse communities and constituencies in Massachusetts touched by violence who share a common grief and a common hope 
    • provides a site for visits by anti-violence education and advocacy groups, survivor groups and individual survivors that is both evocative and inspirational

    • Hiebert Lounge 72 East Concord Street Boston

    The form of commercial sex that some people call prostitution and others call sex work is presently illegal to sell and to buy in the United States, with the exception of 11 counties in Nevada where it is legalized. The public health community is not unified in its perspective on policy options. The purpose of this symposium is to use a public health framework to consider the potential advantages and disadvantages of legalizing or decriminalizing commercial sex in the United States. Speakers will address the harms of criminalizing the buying and selling of sex as well as the need to reduce human trafficking. Lessons learned in the global context will be considered. The objective of the symposium is to equip attendees with a richer understanding of the issue and the likely implications of supporting the legislative options under consideration.
