Network members' voices are heard bringing good news, announcements, and resources happening around our community.
Kicking off 2018, Vital Village
Network had its largest Network
Connection Meeting to date, with 65 participants and nearly 10 children in attendance! Former Judge Sonia Spears inspir
ed the crowd grounding the work we do in social justice saying "We must see the humanity in everyone. Once we look beyond the label, will we advance social justice."
We honored our 2017 Unsung Hero, Rosalyn Johnson, who has demonstrated true leadership with the Vital Village Community Partnership and beyond.
Florence Laforest, a network member involved in the Social Justice M
ediation Program and Village Strategists of Boston, wrote to us about her increased leadership in the METCO Parent Council. She said, "In December, we used
r meeting time to do a holiday potluck social gathering for our f
focus/agenda would be networking, enjoying each o
ther's company, sharing some delicious food and
laughter. Our event was a huge success. On December 21st, over 60 people showed up for the event. We had a Yankee swap for the adults and secret Santa for the kids. Everyone had an amazing time." Your leadership is inspiring, Flo!
