The forum will be in the form of small group discussions using a facilitation process that focuses on sharing and listening to each other's stories. We will discuss personal stories related to the topic and identify challenges we face here in Woburn.

This forum follows in the footsteps of the first Community Forum which took place at St. John's Baptist Church this past October. In attendance will be a number of community leaders, including pastor Cindy Jacobsen, and it will feature small group discussions.

The forum is meant to provide a safe space for members of the Woburn community to discuss race relations and cultural diversity. Residents of all ages are encouraged to attend! Please contact mobrien@socialcapitalinc.org with questions. 

Youth engaging in conversation

SCI Woburn, in collaboration with the Boys & Girls Club, is planning a youth event on the topic of race relations in Woburn. We are seeking youth volunteers who would be interested in acting as panelists for the event. We are hoping to recruit 4-5 panelists in total. Their role in the discussion will be to respond to a series of questions regarding the topic of racism locally, thus facilitating an open dialogue with the audience.

If you are interested in volunteering as a youth panelist, or you know of anyone who might be a good fit, please contact Mollie O'Brien at mobrien@socialcapitalinc.org
