    On March 17th, we invite 7th-12th graders to join us for a Day of Action. Participants will learn about issues facing immigrants and refugees and about political lobbying before making their voices heard by contacting their elected officials in MA and DC. This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in Kids4Peace Boston or just interested in taking action on this important issue. Please share the information below with 7th-12th grade youth/families. We encourage you to organize a group to attend, although individuals are welcome as well!

    Families or group leaders can email me, Ati Waldman, at ati@kids4peaceboston.org for more information, including the program location, and to sign up.
