Take Action Tuesday!

Fellow Engagers -

Thank you for joining in on another week of active engagement. There is nothing normal about the constant loss of life, of Black Lives, that come across our news feeds every day. As a collective we need to keep paying attention, working and agitating for change. Please find a few suggestions for how to do so from your home or neighborhood, and let us know your ideas.

Remembering Juneteenth

Slavery didn't end with the Civil War. Register for this virtual lecture on the origins of Juneteenth.

Hungry for racial justice?

Safe Plates is sponsoring a drive-thru dinner to help support racial equality and justice on Thursday, June 18 from 3-7 PM. The goal is to raise $20,000, and 100% of sales will be donated to: Black Lives Matter-Boston, Equal Justice Initiative, Wôpanâak Language Reclamation Project, and No Place For Hate- Falmouth in order to purchase educational resources in Falmouth and Mashpee Public school systems.

No reservations or ordering ahead necessary. This is a drive-thru event, so please stay in your car and someone will direct you. Cash and card accepted, masks required.

Take your protest to the State House!
