Town Democrats to hold final forum in series

Democratic logo, 2021

The last in a three-part series of interactive forums, hosted by the Arlington Democratic Town Committee, will be held virtually from 7:30 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, June 17.

Titled “Local Actions, More Voices,” the program includes a keynote message from Rep. Ayanna Presley (7th Congressional District), and presentations from panelists, Gerly Adrien (Everett city councilor and mayoral candidate) , Helena Berbano, (currently partnership and outreach director, Asian Americans Futures) and Zane Crute, (president Mystic Valley NAACP). David Whitford, nationally known journalist and Arlington resident will be the moderator.  

The forum will explore key questions including:

Why is local and community activism important? How does it connect to other issues?

How do we encourage more people to get involved particularly those who are typically under represented?

What are some specific ways we can ensure a meaningful role for all? 

Following analysis and first-hand perspectives from the panel, attendees will engage in breakout strategy sessions, coming away with specific insights and actions items to equip both experienced activists and first-timers alike with concrete ways to make a critical difference.

The series is cosponsored by the Democratic Town Committees of Belmont, Boxborough, Brookline, Concord, Lenox, Lexington, Malden, Watertown, and Weston, as well as by organizing groups Indivisible Acton Area, Indivisible Billerica Tewksbury Wilmington, Our Revolution Arlington, Swing Left Greater Boston, Voter Choice Massachusetts, and Young Democrats of Massachusetts.
