Families for Justice as Healing (FJAH) founded in 2010 inside the federal prison for women in Danbury, CT. by Andrea James who sought to create an organization with the crucial, yet often overlooked, focus on incarcerated mothers and the impact on their children. FJAH has been active building coalitions nationally, advocating in legislatures, and raising public awareness about the need to shift from over criminalization and incarceration to reinvestment in communities.

Documentary Gen Silent about LGBT elders, followed by a discussion.

Where to Invade Next
[as of now, 8/28 10pm, 10 seats available]
A sea-change is taking place in the way churches approach their homeless neighbors, and the programs they create to respond to neighbors in need. In this talk Kate Layzer will try to describe that change, what’s important about it, and how it is being expressed in several different area ministries in the Boston area, including a program she founded last year, the Friday Cafe, where she focuses on building community between housed and homeless, mainstream and marginalized.
