Another Boston is Possible…
A Powerful Social Justice Movement is Necessary
Please Join Us 
The World Café is an approach to conversation that allows large groups to participate in rotating small group discussions that leave everyone feeling that they’ve been heard and that they’ve had a chance to hear from many others.  We expect more than 100 participants. Based on the discussion from our last mass meeting on July 13, our goal is to continue the process of building relationships, understanding each other’s issues, and discovering how we can take action together.

We all have been under assault by a system that cares more about bank profits than people’s lives. We also know that there have been exciting examples of growing mass movements in Boston in response to those attacks.
This event is supported by grassroots organizations such as City Life/Vida Urbana, Project Hip Hop, the Hotel Workers Union (Local 26), the Healthcare Workers Union (1199/SEIU), the City School, and other groups, such as the ISO, that have been part of those movements and part of the ad hoc ROC/Summer Institute workshops in Boston.
The idea is to use the momentum from the struggles for social justice going on right now in our communities, plus the momentum from the US Social Forum in Detroit - to build a broad-based movement that is powerful enough to make demands on the city’s powerbrokers.
