Racial & Housing Justice

SIGN OUR LETTER IN RESPONSE TO THE ROXBURY PREP OPPOSITION PETITION:

A group of concerned RISE members have penned a letter that is now being circulated widely for signatures, to be submitted to a range of local papers and elected officials. If you agree that the language that the most vocal opponents to the school are using is racially charged, please add your name to the letter HERE.

ABOUT THIS WORK GROUP:

The Racial and Housing Justice working group’s overall focus is to make Roslindale (and connected neighborhoods) a truly integrated, affordable and inter-connected place.

In its infancy, the group is just starting to solidify its mission. Stay tuned to see what we come up with… better yet, join the group and participate in the process!

The working group is always welcoming members, so please contact Jen Parks at sparkjen@gmail.com to be added to the email list.

Come learn what we can do to fight climate change and environmental racism, especially from our coastal home here in Boston. Climate change, pollution, and environmental degradation disproportionately impact communities of color. Let us seek to address this injustice, by first informing ourselves and then taking action. Our panel consists of local environmental justice leaders.

PAST EVENTS:

Sunday, March 19, 2017 – A Conversation with Black Lives Matter.
