Zoom Webinar


Please join us for ‚ÄúWomen on the Rise: Reimagining Equity in Boston Post-COVID-19.‚Ä̬†This year has taken a drastic turn with the emergence of COVID-19.¬†This pandemic has made clear that our¬†inequitable policies and responses are worsening existing disparities. As we continue to¬†adjust to life¬†in our new normal and¬†as¬†the city prepares to reopen, we must start to imagine Boston post-COVID-19.¬†We have the opportunity, and a responsibility, to¬†envision a better and more equitable Boston. This is important for communities of color, especially women of color, who have primarily experienced this crisis¬†at the frontlines with a variety of challenges.¬†

We invite you to hear from the women of the Boston City Council on how they envision a better, more equitable Boston.
