After a series of gas related explosions in Lawrence, Massachusetts, in September 2018 many Lawrence community members have lost their homes and personal belongings, have been permanently displaced and are living without power or heat. Although there was initial urgency when the explosions occurred, there has been little follow up on the lasting impact. 

Guest speaker Odanis Hernandez, acting director of Strategic Initiatives at the Lawrence Public Schools, will join us to discuss the ongoing impact of this tragedy and urge our community to take action. Dr. Tatiana Cruz, assistant professor of American History will also speak on the historical legacies that have left Lawrence vulnerable.
