The Jamaica Plain Forum is a venue for timely community-based conversations on the great issues shaping our neighborhood and our planet.

A program of the The First Church in Jamaica Plain, Unitarian Universalist, the Jamaica Plain Forum is a free, public series of discussions, lectures, workshops, films, and events addressing current topics of interest to the Jamaica Plain community.

The JP Forum is directed by First Church member Chuck Collins and coordinated by Gillian Mason. The Institute for Policy Studies, where Collins is a senior scholar, provides some support and coordination for the Forum.

Speakers include people from the Jamaica Plain community who are involved in dynamic and stimulating work near and far, as well as regional and national authors, activists, artists and thinkers.

Everyone is welcome to attend the Jamaica Plain Forum. All activities follow the principles of tolerance, respectfulness and inclusiveness.

Although no fee is required for attendance, donations contribute to building-use fees and JP Forum expenses.  We always have a collection open for donated non-perishable food for First Church‘s Food Pantry.

All Jamaica Plain Forum activities are wheelchair accessible.
