"Stand Out Against Racism" at Porter Square, Nov 22, 10am-noon!

Neighbors and Friends,

We invite you to join us at Porter Square - Sunday, Nov 22, 10 am - 12 noon!

We can all talk about the transition (of the administration), and what has to happen now.

I am hoping we can make a few new signs, saying something like, "Let's come together" and vow to "make racism history". I am very much aware that even here in MA, we still do not have a police reform bill out of Beacon Hill; and here in Cambridge we have experienced some ugly examples of how far we have yet to go.

PSNA - November 19 zoom meeting, thisThursday, 7-9 pm!

This will be a very busy meeting as we have a number of different things to cover.

 

    First off, we will have a brief update on the proposed 100% Affordable Housing Project at 2072 Mass Ave. We will hear from Capstone Communities re their recent BZA application and thoughts about changes (reflecting input from neighbors). We will also  talk about the timing of their Planning Board meeting.

Neighbors,

We invite you to join us at Porter Square - Sunday, Nov 15, at 10 am! 

We can talk about the failure to pass police reform yet in MA. We need to all write/call the Shead of Speaker of the House and the President of the Senate. Tell them we want the bill now!
