Community Works: Greater Boston Social Justice Blog is a project supported by Community Works, a local non-profit striving for systemic community change. Progression in the area of social justice stems from minds at work and from meaningful conversations among people with diverse perspectives. This blog will allow different voices to partake in a special kind of dialogue about the colorful communities in which we live and the ways in which we may continue to improve them. These types of discussions require thought, attention, and collaboration.
The member organizations that Community Works supports have made these discussions essential to their missions and to their daily lives. The organizations focus on affordable housing, quality health care, environmental justice, civil rights, safe neighborhoods, economic equity, and youth leadership among so many other facets of life.
The solutions to these complex and expansive issues come from an examination of a vast collection thoughts, movements, and viewpoints concerning social justice. The Greater Boston Social Justice Blog intends to create a platform for thoughtful analysis of the world around us and all of the obstacles that it presents to so many individuals. The ingredients of conversation and curiosity can be used to create a recipe for action and change. Read, watch, consider, and share.
