In August, the The Movement for Black Lives released its policy platform, the Vision for Black Lives. In a series of 6 workshops, we're diving into each of the broad demand areas outlined in the platform, and connecting you to racial justice work happening in Greater Boston. **You may attend one or more of the workshops in the series.**
