Monday March 5, 7-9pm, First Parish Unitarian Universalist of Arlington

Please come hear one perspective on what a good DA does from Donna Patalano, candidate for Middlesex County DA.

Dismantling White Supremacy Film Series at the Jamaica Plain Forum

Throughout March, April, and May,

Co-sponsored by First Church UU of JP – Social Justice Action Committee, Theodore Parker Church

As persons of faith living in 21st century America, we feel called to question how we might work, take action, do our part, to dismantle white supremacy. We seek to deepen our understanding of the role white supremacy has played in the development of our modern day society, take some inventory, and identify opportunities for collective action.
