Boston PCM Climate Justice Teach-ins: Sign-up!
On April 29, people from across MA will converge on the Boston Common to rally for Jobs, Justice, & Climate (12-1pm) and participate in Climate Justice Teach-ins (1:30-4:00pm) to learn more about the intersection between climate change and a range of other social justice issues.
All teach-ins will happen at an indoor space near the Common between 1:30-4:00pm, divided into two 1-hour sessions (1:45-2:45pm and 3:00-4:00pm), so you'll be able to choose 2 workshops to attend.

The final schedule for when/where each workshop will be taking place can be found in the image pictured here:
