We are excited to invite you to attend our first Hyjack dah Hood, which is about residents taking initiative to Rebuild, Remain and Reclaim our neighborhood. All of our neighborhoods in Boston have unused land due to corporate greed. It is our TIME to take back what is rightfully ours. Enough is enough; we want the community to understand that this is our community and SPEAK OUT! Together, we will learn the impacts of structural racism, participate in activities on how to address the issues with powerful responses, learn and role play effective anti-racism strategies, how to build solidarity movements and more.

Workshop Topics Will Include:

  • Understanding Structural Racism
  • Understanding who’s in our Hood:
  • Strategy to be successful:
  • Relationship-Building:

Rebuild, Remain, Reclaim

  1. To maintain security - For our neighborhoods, our people, and our lives because we are threatened by the corrupt law enforcement that does not protect us
  2. Affordable - Transportation that we can rely on without braking our pocket to pay rent, community centers the residents can benefit from, Local produce and vegetables
  3. Healthy - We want better food options to maintain a strong balance, mentally and physically to be more successful.
  4. Accessible - Community space is available to everyone who needs it and does not discriminate against formerly incarcerated persons, immigrants of all statuses, LGBTQ and people with disabilities, more parks, rec centers, and transportation.
  5. Community Control - to establish control on vacant or unused land in the community we’ve been rooted in for years.

SEE YA SOON!
