The Vigil in Support of Black Lives Matter in Jamaica Plain has taken place every month since December 2015 (save for a 2-month pause for COVID-19) because we recognize that systemic racism and injustice are woven into the fabric of our society with tragic results for people of color. We stand in witness for racial justice and human rights and against racist violence and white supremacy. We welcome everyone to join us.
