Students Lead Global Climate Strikes

When: Friday, September 20, 2019, 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Where: Many locations globally • Boston

As another global School Strike unfolds today in 118 countries, I’m struck by the power of youth and wondering how we can join together as a multi-generational and multiracial movement beyond this moment.  

I am forwarding you this call to action published today by Greta Thunberg, Isra Hirsi, Alexandria Villaseñor, and dozens of young climate organizers from across the world. Over a million students are out of school again today to highlight the climate emergency we face, calling on allies of all ages to join in on the action.

When: Sunday, February 24, 2019, 11:00 am to 1:30 pm
Where: Community Church of Boston • 565 Boylston Street, 2nd floor • Boston
The church — both the Negro church and the white church cannot fully reconcile their racial differences because at the heart of their differences exist capitalism. It was capitalism that transformed the Negro church after 1970 from an agent seeking radical change to one procuring materialism. And because churches love capitalism, they continue to fall short of being revolutionary change agents. Capitalism promotes racism and divides the Black and white working class from an achievable world. The white church fails at transforming the weak, poor, and oppressed in their space.
