Massachusetts Day of Empathy - Roxbury

March 05, 2019 at 6pm - 8pm | Bruce C. Bolling Municipal Building | 2300 Washington St Roxbury, MA 02119 United States | Map and directions ›

This will be a free community event to create awareness around criminal justice issues that affect men, women, and ultimately our youth. Through an open panel discussion, we will highlight initiatives that advocates and policy creators are currently pushing to strengthen our communities. We will discuss the need for greater empathy towards those who are directly impacted by the laws within our justice system but also those who are indirectly impacted, and what that actively looks like. We will have a robust panel of speakers from State Representative Liz Miranda, to representatives from Community Resources for Justice, Roca, Citizens for Juvenile Justice, I Have A Future, Sisters Unchained, StuckonReplay, and as well as advocates who will BOLDY share their personal experiences and stories to bring balanced context to the conversation. Join us to #liftyourvoice, engage in our Q & A session, and find out what you can do to help create much needed change within our nation.
*Free Admission, Refreshments will be provided
