FORJ – Families Organizing for Racial Justice

Calling all parents who want to get involved in working for connected school communities and racial justice!
Join FORJ – Families Organizing for Racial Justice – on Thursday, February 8th from 7:30-9:30pm at Angier Elementary School to learn what several Newton Public Schools are doing to bring their communities together while working to reduce racism and injustice on many levels.
After the presentations, you will have time to meet and talk with other parents at your child’s or teen’s school. This is a great opportunity to get inspired and meet people across Newton who care about racial justice and want to develop their cultural competence.
Want to join our mailing list to learn about future opportunities? Please email the FORJ Coordinator at amy@amybehrens.com and put “JOIN FORJ” in the subject. Be sure to include your name and what schools your children attend. Check our our website at: https://forjnewton.com/
Our next meeting on Wednesday, February 28th 6:30-8:30pm is “Talking to Children about Race and Racism: Why and How?” Come join us to learn effective ways to talk with your children about race and racism next week in Boston at the beautiful Salvation Army Kroc Center, 650 Dudley St. Dorchester, MA 02125. There is ample parking around this community center, but you can also carpool or take the T to Dudley Station and walk over easily.
We look forward to seeing you!
