First Church JP, 6 Eliot St (map)
RSVP and Invite Your Friends on Facebook 
Intersectionality
Join the Jamaica Plain Forum and friends in hosting an intergenerational and interracial panel exploring an intersectional approach to amplifying social impact work.  What happens when identity politics fall by the wayside and we bring our whole selves, as convoluted as they may be, to our work?    
Come hear panelists’ stories on how they have navigated various parts of their identities–as fathers, as children, as activists, as black, as women–in their work for social justice and equity.
 
Meck Groot, Justice Ministries Lead, New England Region Unitarian Universalist Association, will facilitate the panel.
Panelist include: 
Shay Stewart-Bouley, the Executive Director of Community Change Inc.
Carolyn Chou, Program Director at the Asian American Resource Workshop and JP resident.
Shea Justice, Teacher and Artist behind the Boston Strong? Exhibit
Jason Pramas, Professor of Communications at Lesley University and Boston Strong? Exhibit Artist.
