Mattapan United Stand Against Racism Event

Mattapan United AmeriCorps Members at Event

On Friday, April 25 our partners Mattapan United hosted a Stand Against Racism event. This event brought together people within the community for an open forum to discuss the elimination of racism. The youth of Mattapan had their voices and concerns heard at this event. There were performances, presentations, great food, and much more. The Mattapan United Youth Council and those that attended the event made personal pledges against racism. The event was a great turnout and there was amazing discussion on various topics including empathy, colorism, and race in the Media.
