Peace Rally Boston (Love Trumps Hate)

Peace Rally Boston (Love Trumps Hate)

Yesterday the Boston branch of the Qwear team attended a healing peace rally on the commons on the coldest day of the impending winter.

Hundreds of people of all ages, races, abilities, and identities joined together to help heal and promote our mission to preserve love. Parents loved our signs and several of them asked us if they could get photos of us with their kids.

We are thrilled to share some beautiful images with you. I believe that no matter how much your impulse may be to stay inside, we must break past the doors of our homes and come together. Many dangers lie ahead, but so do many beautiful moments of peace and unity.
