Picnic In The Park

The Office of Fair Housing and Equity (FHE) is excited to host a series of events called "Picnics in the Park!"

The Office of Fair Housing and Equity (FHE) is excited to be hosting a series of events we are calling "Picnics in the Park!" We will provide a tailored Fair Housing training that will not only cover the history and laws protecting fair housing, but specifically discuss the rights of Boston's LGBTQIA+ community to have equitable access to housing. Afterwards, participants will take proactive steps by canvassing the local area with posters that we will display in local businesses and bulletins. Of course, light lunch will be served because what is a picnic without some refreshments! We look forward to this informative and collaborative event.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Maggie Callaghan at maggie.callaghan@boston.gov or 617-635-2536.

2022 JROTC Awards and Recognition Day

Our office is hosting the 2022 JROTC Awards and Recognition Day event on Friday, June 3. If you are interested in attending this event please email us at veterans@boston.gov

The JROTC program has expanded from the first unit, established in the Mario Umana High School in East Boston in 1976 to one which now includes 6 Boston High Schools.  The goal of the program is to motivate young people to become better citizens. The purpose is not to prepare students for active military service, but to develop leadership, responsibility, self-esteem and an understanding of good citizenship.
