The Jamaica Plain Forum
First Church in Jamaica Plain, UU
6 Eliot St. (Across from the monument)
Jamaica Plain, MA 02130

In a world where we increasingly see marketing in every nook and cranny, it is not surprising that there are advertisements targeted to children. However, what is surprising is the extent and reach of that marketing. For example, current statistics show us that children see more than 40,000 commercials on television, contributing to a $15 billion dollar industry. Dr. Susan Linn, child psychotherapist and author, is leading the pack in reducing the harmful effects of exploitative marketing on children.

Join Susan at the Jamaica Plain Forum as she reveals the impact that over-marketing has on the development and creativity of our children. By interweaving real-life stories of marketing to children, child development theory, the latest research, and what marketing experts themselves say about their work, Susan reveals the magnitude of this problem and shows what can be done about it.

Love Democracy, but Hate Politicians?.jpgDiscredit Representative Democracy, Promote Direct Democracy: Let’s Make Super Tuesday Truly Super!

By Boston members of the Northeast Anarchist Network

This Tuesday, “Super Tuesday,” Massachusetts voters will turn in for the Primaries to cast their ballots along with voters in 23 other states.
