We’ve had two great movie nights this Fall! The stories of Selma and of Cesar Chavez were truly inspiring. Both movies depict how non-violence was used to achieve change. Neighbors gathered on Sumner St. to watch the epic march from Selma to Montgomery to win the right to vote for African Americans and then at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church to watch the five year long strike and boycott to win a union contract and dignity for farm workers. We’ve come a long way and still have a long way to go in the fight for equality. ¡Pa’lante!
Join your neighbors to watch “Selma” the epic march from Selma to Montgomery that resulted in the signing of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement.
Currently in Massachusetts, landlords can evict “no fault,” which means they do not need to provide a reason. While most landlords will provide a reason, many evictions are no-fault. A lot of big corporate landlords and flippers are using this as a way to push people out of our communities to make more profit.
A Just Cause Eviction law would put the brakes on the displacement chain reaction by protecting vulnerable renters.
