Join the Jamaica Plain Forum and friends in hosting an intergenerational

social impact work.  *What happens when identity politics fall by the
wayside and we bring our whole selves, as convoluted as they may be, to our
work?    *
Come hear panelists' stories on how they have navigated various parts of
their identities--as fathers, as children, as activists, as black, as
women--in their work for social justice and equity.

*Meck Groot*, Justice Ministries Lead, New England Region Unitarian
Universalist Association, will facilitate the panel.
Panelist include: *Shay Stewart-Bouley*, the Executive Director of
Community Change Inc. *Carolyn Chou*, Program Director at the Asian
American Resource Workshop and JP resident, *Shea Justice*, Teacher and
Artist behind the Boston Strong? Exhibit
​ ​
and* Jason Pramas*, Professor of Communications at Lesley University and
Boston Strong? Exhibit Artist.
