Civil Rights Movement 2015?

Sunday, January 25 | Boston

Arlington Street Church
351 Boylston Street

Across the country thousands of young people of color have taken to the streets. Defying authority and traditional methods of political change, they are demanding an end to racism in policing, in the justice system, and in the economic system.

What does this mean for Boston? What does it mean for you? And, most importantly, how can you get down with the Movement?

Arlington Street Church is delighted to welcome guest speaker Carl Williams, ACLU attorney, activist, organizer, and Northeastern University's Givelber Distinguished Lecturer on Public Interest Law as we grapple with these challenging questions in these sacred times.

Follow Carl on Twitter at @carltonwilliams, and learn more about the event on Facebook.
