Peace Walk

The Maryland Judiciary held its second annual family-friendly Peace Walk this past fall – a free, fun, 3K walk with a purpose: to raise awareness about the variety of services people can use to peacefully resolve conflicts within their families, neighborhoods, schools, workplaces, houses of worship, and other organizations.

The Peace Walk is held in October, which is International Conflict Resolution Month. Walkers of all ages are invited to stroll a 3-kilometer (1.8-mile) course around Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, and enjoy music, games and other activities, win prizes and earn free T-shirts and tote bags, and visit information tables to learn more about organizations in Maryland that offer conflict resolution services, such as mediation, community conferencing, and conflict coaching, as well as other services for the community. The District Court of Maryland Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Office, the Court of Special Appeals ADR Division, and the Judiciary’s Mediation and Conflict Resolution Office (MACRO) share information about services available through the courts.
