Immigration Raids Create Emotional Trauma and Economic Distress for Children, New Report FInds
199190_IMG_0095.JPGBoston, MA - The Massachusetts Immigrant & Refugee Advocacy Coalition (MIRA) and the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers (NSWMA) presented a new report by the Urban Institute and the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), which examines how recent immigration enforcement actions have affected the wellbeing of children of immigrants in the U.S.

Researchers found that for every two people detained in immigration enforcement operations, one child is left behind. Two-thirds of these children are U.S. citizens and a similar share is under age ten. The report details the consequences of immigration enforcement operations on children's psychological, educational, economic, and social wellbeing. It also outlines the heavy burden that workplace raids are placing on communities, school systems, social service providers, and religious institutions, which have acted as first responders for families in these incidents.

Reclaiming the Streets One Honk at a Time
honk6.jpgBoston, Mass.--Let's face it, we spend less and less time in public and when we do, it is often to just get from one place to another. True, every city has its fair share of festivities each year that manage to bring the populous into the streets for "celebration", but the result of these activities is little more than dollars spent, food ingested, and the possibility of being entertained.

The Honk Festival, now in its second year, is intended to be the exact opposite. The flyers describe it simply as a "Festival of Activist Street Bands," but this is no average performance. Yes, there is music, lots of music, and there's theater too, but there are no stages, no DJ's, no cart-wielding vendors, and yeah, it's free.

Peace Outlet
IMG_0131.JPGTed Ackley, from Rhode Island, came by himself and simply said: “I have a four year-old daughter and I want things to get better, not worse. I want peace on earth.” He then proceeded to hand out pieces of paper with an electric outlet on it… because everyone deserves a peace outlet.
