The upcoming Boston Mayoral election promises to bring Boston into a new era of politics with the growing likelihood of electing the first non-white male Mayor in Boston’s history. However, with the litany of prevailing social issues impacting Black and Brown communities, will this election truly represent the change that so many have waited decades for?

Join the Ash Center and the Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston for the first of two sessions in the "What Justice Looks Like" event series focusing on the urgent issues—from economic and climate justice to immigration and mass incarceration —that the next Mayor of Boston must address to rectify structural inequities and support Black and Brown communities. We'll hear from grassroots advocates working every day for meaningful social change on the ground about what an agenda for justice and equity in Black and Brown communities should look like.
