FRAMINGHAM – Jewish Family Services of MetroWest in conjunction with Nipmuc Nation, Framingham Public Schools, the Greater Framingham Community Church, Jewish Teen Initiative at CJP, and Temple Shir Tikva. made a statement against hate and recognizing historical injustices that tie into our communities’ present-day injustices by holding an Indigenous Peoples’ day event today, October 11.
Community leaders and Cultural Stewards of the Nipmuc Nation spoke and performed at the outdoor event held at McCarthy Elementary School on Flagg Drive.
The 90-minute ceremony features community leaders and student speakers also.
“This event is an opportunity to recognize historical injustices that connect to our communities’ present-day injustices. It will be a chance for our Metrowest community and communities to come together to declare with a united voice that hate has no place here. And because we will not let hate be the final word, we will also have opportunities to spread love with acts of service,” said organizers.
