Racial and Immigration Justice: Take Action This Week

We encourage you to save this link and check it early in the week. Action opportunities will be posted on the website each Monday.

In these especially challenging times it can be overwhelming to decide how to make a difference. The Racial Justice Action Committee wants to help FPB members increase our collective impact in the critical work of racial and immigration justice and, at the same time, build supportive community.

For more information, contact Martha Leader or Almas Dossa.

3. Canvass for City Life/Vida Urbana

When: Saturday, August 17th at 10:00 AM - 2:30 PM

Where: CLVU Office, 284 Amory St, Jamaica Plain

The SURJ Housing Justice Action Partnership is seeking canvassers to support City Life/Vida Urbana’s anti-displacement work. Canvassers help City Life learn about what housing issues are happening locally, and spread the word about City Life so people can connect with housing justice organizing work and legal support. Folks from the Housing Justice group will be helping train/mentor this group of canvassers alongside City Life staff/volunteers. We think it will be a great way to get folks deeper involved in SURJ and in local housing justice work! If you are interested in attending the canvass or if you'd like to learn more, please reach out to Brian at
