Where: Cambridge Friends Meeting • 5 Longfellow Park • near Harvard Sq (off Brattle St) • Cambridge
2013 May 20 - 7:00pm

A forum sponsored by United for Justice with Peace

As we grieve the devastating impact of the Marathon bombings had on many families and communities in the Boston area, we are also aware of the need to examine the impact of those bombings on peace and justice issues in our communities, campaigns and organizing.

Presentations will provide analysis and ideas for response from the anti-war, immigrants’ rights, civil liberties, anti-war, economic justice, and Muslim communities.

How do we change the violent discourse and build solidarity between our movements? There will be ample time for discussion, and the forum is open to the public.

Memorial March for Peace 

Start date: Wednesday, August 28, 2013

 

As the 50th anniversary of the historic 1963 March on Washington approaches, our nation can celebrate remarkable progress in civil rights. Yet despite these gains, deep inequalities persist and youth violence is devastating communities across the country.
