Allied agencies and organizations – including representatives from Survivors Inc., PDHRE, the Urban League, the American Friends Service Committee, Black and Pink, the Community Church of Boston, the Volunteer Lawyers Project, Spare Change and others – will hold a forum at the Twelfth Baptist Church in Roxbury to strategize and coordinate around a Boston-specific human rights framework.
The challenges facing Boston are complex, interrelated and often structurally ingrained.
Friday’s forum is an opportunity for the wider Boston community and social justice organizations to build and implement just such a framework. It is another step in the road to building Boston into a Human Rights City for all its residents. As Survivors, Inc. member Diane Dujon stated, “To me, Human Rights City Boston means that everyone, especially the grassroots, is empowered to claim their human rights to food, housing, dignity and the necessities of life.
