Last Friday afternoon February 14, the Boston Public Health Commission's Violence Intervention Project (responsible for the iconic "Our Mattapan" violence awareness ad campaign you may have seen around town) and the Mattapan Community Health Center marched for peace on Blue Hill Avenue along with people who live and work in Mattapan.  The march ended at the Mattapan Branch Library, where marchers enjoyed hot cocoa, chanted and were addressed by a few different community leaders.  Thank you BPHC, VIP and MCHC and thank you everyone who came out!  To learn more about the Violence Intervention Project, visit .
