Youth present EJ projects at cook-out this Friday

May 6, 2008

REEP students from New Mission High School serve an active and critical role at ACE and in their community. Show them your appreciation this Friday, May 9, by attending "Unity in the Community: A Forum of Environmental Justice Service." This event is sponsored by the high school students at New Mission and is the culmination of a year of working hard in the community.

The event begins at 3:00 p.m. with an Opening BBQ at the Tobin Community Center. Come have some food and drinks and see student artwork about the need for affordable housing in Boston. Then at 4:00, students will unveil and present their workshops, projects, poems, and videos on such topics as the Boston University Bioterrorism Lab and Transportation issues in the city. Stick around until 5:30 when seniors at New Mission and representatives of the Boston Police Department will sponsor a youth forum to discuss solutions on how to make our community safer.

This is a free event open to the public - show up for as much or as little as you’d like! The Tobin Community Center is located at 1481 Tremont Street, Roxbury Crossing. Contact the students by email or call 617-635-6437 for more information.
