BLM Vigil set for Oct. 1

The October Vigil in Support of Black Lives Matter will be held Thursday, October 1, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. on the lawn of the First Baptist Church of Jamaica Plain, 633 Centre St.  The speaker is one of our local leaders in youth work, Corey Stallings,  Program Director of the South Street Youth Center. 

Corey started the South Street Clubhouse where youths have learned and experimented with a large selection of digital media and computer skills.  Also he connected to local and regional youth development organizations and politicians to keep the center alive and well.  As he would say the real story is the center has been going for 25 years and has a large impact on the community.    Everyone is invited to participate in this monthly stand out for racial

justice and human rights.    For further information , contact Mary Lenihan at [email protected] or Penny Wells at [email protected].
