Moving Forward Together – Virtual Event

On the evening of Thursday, October 22, 2020, the Black Ministerial Alliance of Greater Boston and the Boston Ten Point Coalition will host our 2020 Fall Virtual Gala. This year’s theme is Moving Forward Together. We look forward to celebrating this tremendous partnership and hope you can join us for what will be an extra special evening.

Our Gala will be a Virtual Event, from 6-7 p.m. We will “gather” with many other friends and supporters as the BMA and Boston Ten Point Coalition share stories of our work with partner clergy, churches, community based organizations, philanthropic and government leaders who support and champion the diverse families and communities we serve.  Each year 300+ friends of BMA Boston gather at our fall gala to raise critical unrestricted funds.  This year, we encourage you to fix your favorite beverage and listen to inspirational gospel music, and see and hear from our special guests .  The evening will be filled with compelling stories of hope, social justice, determination, and accomplishment.  Please join us!

 BMA Boston was founded in the 1960’s civil rights movement with a mission to  serve the Black community in Boston’s neighborhoods.  BMA fulfills its mission by serving as an intermediary organization working in partnership with over 100 churches and nonprofit agencies annually to deliver services to thousands of children, youth, and families. The Boston Ten Point Coalition was founded in 1992 with a mission to end patterns of violence in Boston. The two organizations have worked closely together for nearly thirty years and we will be celebrating our merger into a single organization at the Gala. Truly, we will be Moving Forward Together!

 The BMA’s Victory Generation Program serves more than 500 youth adults by providing culturally appropriate after-school services. Our evaluation indicated that 95% of students achieved an A or B in Math and 85% achieved an A or B in English.  Our Youth Jobs and Teen Cafe initiative is an innovative violence prevention program serving more than 1,000 youth and developed in partnership with the Boston Police Department, as part of a city-wide strategy to reduce youth violence.  Our Fit Church, Fit Community Program is an initiative that partners with churches and congregations in low income, minority neighborhoods of Boston to improve health outcomes and reduce health disparities through good nutrition and exercise.

We look forward to celebrating with you.
