Lynn Community Activists Host Equal Rights Forum

Several Community Groups Put Together Forum in Honor of MLK Day

With Martin Luther King Day fast approaching, community activists have joined together to honor his legacy of civil rights with a forum that celebrates Lynn’s proud history as a hotbed of progressive causes throughout history and discusses the next steps to engage the residents of the city in a common cause for equal rights and social justice.

From the abolitionist movement and labor organizing to current struggles with poverty, racism, disenfranchisement, and civic pride, the forum will make Lynn residents more aware of their city’s accomplishments and potential for the future.

The Equal Rights Forum, to be held at Ford Elementary School in the Highlands neighborhood of Lynn, will ask two simple questions to those in attendance:

“How far have we come in obtaining equal rights for all?”
“Where do we go from here?”

The Equal Rights Forum
Tuesday, January 22
6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Ford Elementary School
Lynn, Massachusetts

Food will be served from 5 to 6.

SPONSORS: Highlands Coalition - New Lynn Coalition - Haitian Elders Action League - Community Connections - Operation Bookstrap - Neighbor to Neighbor - NAACP

Extras Exhibition opens on January 18 at visionspace gallery

Centerboard’s visionspace gallery and Extras for Creative Reuse have teamed up to produce an eclectic mix of found art pieces for the gallery’s latest installation. Extras, located at the JB Blood Building on 20 Wheeler Street, is the North Shore’s premiere upcycling location. Geared toward educators and artists, one can find a dazzling array of items at Extras, ranging from a “wall of binders” to material, yarn, patches, stickers, craft paper and one of a kind pieces that you will not see anywhere else.

This collaboration came about after Extras and visionspace teamed up for an installation back in September of the “Extras Monster”. That piece showcased the many possibilities that can come from shopping at the center.

For this installation, artists visited Extras, found the materials they wished to use and then created their pieces for submission. Dan Lambert of Extras is the curator of the show and has assembled an interesting collection of originality. The opening is this Friday, January 18 from 6-10pm at visionspace gallery, located at 16 City Hall Square in downtown Lynn.
