Where: Dewey Square • intersection of Atlantic Avenue, Summer Street, Federal Street, Purchase Street and Surface Artery • near South Station • boston

It’s past time for us to stand up and defend what is rightfully ours.

We call on a broad range of justice and freedom organizers, organizations and coalitions to come together to fight an out of control government that kills, imprisons and spies as if we are the enemy. We are the people.

The government tells us to be afraid. It spies and harasses and imprisons. It murders and tortures.

Healing from Tragedy and Resisting a Bigoted Backlash

Community Church of Boston is located in Copley Square, not far from the finish line of the Boston Marathon where fatal bombings took place on 4/15. Events such as these challenge our communities in several ways as we deal with trauma from the bombings themselves, the ensuing police and military response, and the predictable xenaphobic and Islamaphobic backlash. Join us for a guided community discussion as we sort through feelings and ideas about how we might best respond.
