Progressive West Roxbury/Roslindale will be hosting an event on April 9 to provide an opportunity to learn about these inequities. Progressive WRox/Roz has joined with NAACP-Boston, Lawyers for Civil Rights, JP Progressives, Downtown Progressives, Citizens for Public Schools, QUEST, and several other groups to form the Boston Coalition for Education Equity.
