Community Forum on Race Relations A Success

Audience members discussing issues at forum

St. John's Baptist Church, in collaboration with SCI, held the first Community Forum on Race Relations this past Friday, October 28. There was great turnout from the Woburn community, who engaged in an honest and candid conversation with the discussion panel, consisting of five community leaders and one Woburn Memorial High School (WMHS) student. Among the panel were Mayor Scott Galvin, St. John's Rev. Dr. Neal Pearson, Woburn United Methodist Church's Rev. Dr. Yoo-Yun Cho-Chang, Police Chief Tom Ferullo, Superintendent of School's Mark Donovan, and WMHS sophomore student, Francis Kitiibwa. The forum was moderated by SCI's David Crowley, alongside Ron Walker.

As the first in what we hope to be a series of related forums, it was a great success for not only SCI and St. John's Baptist Church, but for the community of Woburn as a whole. At the end of the forum, Rev. Dr. Neal Pearson thanked the audience members and panelists, "Let's not make this one night only. Let's come up with a plan to make this two nights, three nights, however long it takes."
