Real Talk: Environmental Racism & Gentrification
Hosted by: Latinx Action Group, College Democrats of MA, Latin American Student Organization (LASO)
Join the Latinx Action Group and College Democrats of MA in collaboration with the Latin American Student Organization (LASO) for an interactive workshop in which we can begin to understand the reality of gentrification and environmental racism by highlighting their overlap. For the first part of the workshop we will be bringing in a few speakers from the Greater Boston community who have been directly affected by gentrification and/or environmental racism. These personal narratives given by empowering activists and community builders will set the stage for what will be one of our realest talks yet.
During the second part of the workshop, you will have the opportunity to attend both workshops lead by two different community organizers. The workshops will focus on the issues of environmental racism and/or gentrification.
When: 6 p.m.
Where: Latino/a Student Cultural Center, 104 Forsyth St., Boston
