Lunch & Learn: Racial Justice & The MBTA Communities Law in the Mystic Valley


Join us in Malden for a presentation and discussion that delves into the significance of the MBTA Communities Law and its role in promoting community desegregation throughout Massachusetts.

Presenter Bob Van Meter, Senior Advisor at JALSA and interim Executive Director of the Brookline Community Development Corporation, will provide an overview of the MBTA Communities Law, and discuss how this legislation can foster more inclusive, sustainable communities in Malden, the broader Mystic Valley and across Massachusetts.

Participants will learn about the history of exclusionary zoning and how the MBTA Communities Law can help redress the harms caused by exclusionary zoning. Participants will also learn how to connect these teachings to opportunities to take action in Malden!

Lunch will be provided.

Co-Sponsored by the Jewish Alliance for Law and Social Action (JALSA) and Mystic Valley Progressives (MVP).

Date: Sunday, Dec. 10th    Time: 12 p.m. (Lunch will be provided)    Location: 2 Elm Street, Malden, MA
