Transforming Boston: A Black and Brown Justice Agenda for the New Mayor
November 9, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
What will Boston’s historic mayoral election mean for Boston’s Black and Brown communities? While the election of the first woman mayor is a watershed moment for Boston, will the next mayor deliver the equity and justice that Black and Brown communities have waited decades for?
Join the Ash Center, Carr Center for Human Rights Policy, Center for Public Leadership, FXB Center for Health and Human Rights, and the Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston for the second of two sessions focusing on the urgent issues – from education and housing to economic development and communal violence – that the next mayor of Boston must address to rectify structural inequities and support Black and Brown communities. This event will take place a week after the mayor is elected. We’ll hear from grassroots advocates working every day for meaningful social change on the ground about what an agenda for justice and equity in Black and Brown communities should look like.
This session will feature:
- Toiell Washington, Black Boston 2020
- George (Chip) Greenidge, Greatest Minds, Ash Center Visiting Democracy Fellow
- Kaidi Grant, Black Market Nubian
- Yanilda González, Assistant Professor of Public Policy, Harvard Kennedy School
- David Corbie, MPA student, Harvard Kennedy School
