COMMUNITY CHURCH OF BOSTON
"A Peace & Justice Congregation since 1920"
JANUARY 2013 SUNDAY FORUMS
January 6th -- 36th Annual Sacco-Vanzetti Social Justice Award
HONORING TAREK MEHANNA
It is with great joy that the Community Church of Boston honors Tarek Mehanna with the 36th Annual Sacco & Vanzetti Social Social Justice Award. We will gather to celebrate this man's commitment to his community and the rights and dignity of oppressed peoples throughout the world, and to condemn the persecution he has endured for exercising his right to free speech and expression. We will also celebrate the struggles of all justice seekers and remember the lasting legacy of Sacco & Vanzetti.
Many in Massachusetts know the travesty of justice that the Sacco & Vanzetti case represented. The Community Church of Boston strives to keep alive the memory of these two Italian immigrant anarchists who were unjustly targeted, by reminding the world that the same kind of injustices that occurred in the 1920's and throughout history continue today. Tarek Mehanna is one of many people still seeking justice.
January 13th -- MATT DUMONT
"Who Are We, Where Are We Going, What Are We Going to Do?"
Matt Dumont is CCB's speaker of longest standing. His name first appears in the archives as a speaker in 1972, and his sharp-edged commentaries on medical, economic, social and political unrealities have always provoked lively discussions. We welcome Matt back to our humble pulpit.
Dr. Matt Dumont is a Boston based author, psychotherapist, and advocate for the poor and displaced. His books include 'Treating the Poor: A Personal Sojourn Through the Rise and Fall of Community Mental Health' and
'The Absurd Healer'.
January 20th -- Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
BOSTON YOUTH ORGANIZING PROJECT
“National Student Bill of Rights”
The National Student Bill of Rights for all Youth is an effort to bring together youth from across the country to define a youth vision for education and social justice. Youth from different cities are developing local bills and working together to write a national bill that will become a unifying document for youth nation-wide and a driving force for youth movement building.
Boston Youth Organizing Project is an organization of youth led by youth supported by adults that are united by a common purpose to make our city, communities and schools more hospitable and equitable places for all youth.
January 27th -- COMMUNITY DISCUSSION
“Tell Us Your CCB Tales: Gems From The Archives”
