FORJ@Cabot meets virtually the first Thursday of every month, from 8-9pm to discuss activities like the ones below. We'd love to see you there! Email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we'll send you the Zoom link for our next meet-up.
Each family is unique in how they want to get involved in work related to racial justice. Below you'll find diverse options, so you can focus your time and energy on the area that speaks to you.
Families of Color
The group fosters connection, community and support for families who have kids at Newton schools in which at least one family member identifies as a Person of Color.
This year, we held several parent zoom sessions, hosted a virtual kid event, and had a playground meetup for families. Connect with us on Facebook
FORJ Social Action
Parent Book Club & Podcast Club
Join parent discussions about books and podcasts centered on race, with the intention of building connection and learning together. Book highlights include: Stamped and Such a Fun Age. Podcast selections have focused on school segregation, cross-racial friendship, and reparations. For the full list of media we've discussed, click here.
Get Involved Beyond Cabot
While FORJ@Cabot focuses on initiatives within the Cabot community specifically, there is complementary work happening at the broader district level -- from social action work related to housing or policy to events and parent workshops. We'd be happy to connect you if you want to get involved in this important work.
