Students from Dorchester’s Neighborhood House Charter School had one message for City Hall: “Stop the violence”.

Students from Rachel Moo’s second-grade class organized a peace march on Monday, which ran from the Park Street T Station to City Hall, as a way to express themselves in a positive manner and become more engaged in the politics of the city.

While the march, which also included fourth-graders from the school, was short-lived, according to Moo, it gave students a chance to become engaged in the decisions that surround and affect their lives.

"It was really exciting to watch the energy and enthusiasm come from these kids," said Moo.
