The newly established Environmental Justice Committee partnered with the Clean Water Fund, to host #Get The Lead Out, a hybrid program to educate community members that there is no safe level of lead- not in drinking water, nor in the human body. If you weren't able to attend, check out the recording!
In Spring 2021, the Reparations Committee called more than 400 members of Congress, including every member of the House Committee on the Judiciary, during the lead up to their historic markup of H.R. 401. The committee continues to engage legislators through Chapter Conversations. In June 2021, the committee had a Chapter Conversation with Assistant Speaker, Congresswoman Katherine Clark, who serves the Fifth District of Massachusetts, on A Political History of America's Black Reparations Movement.
Members of the branch participated in numerous Juneteenth events taking place across the Mystic Valley area. Celebrations and observances took place in Woburn, Medford, Malden, Arlington, Everett, Winchester and the First Parish Unitarian Universalist of Arlington. Juneteenth flags were raised, speeches, poetry, music and more were parts of the celebrations. Check out some photos from the events and recordings!
