On Saturday, January 13 from 9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., City Mission will be hosting its annual Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Learning. Fifty years ago, Dr. King announced the Poor People’s Campaign. Although launched in 1968, this movement remains relevant today – join us as we continue this important work. The U.S. Census reflects the huge disparities in Boston, where the poverty rate for white residents is just under 7%, and for Black residents is 21.5%.

This event, held at United Parish (210 Harvard Street, Brookline), will include guest speakers and facilitated small groups to help us learn from, and build community, with each other. Our own Rev. Barbara Callaghan is on the panel and will be helping to lead small group discussions. To register, visit City Mission’s website.
