Date(s) - 06/29/2024
1:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Join us on June 29th to support Resist, one of our partner organizations for the 11th Annual Celebration of Grassroots Organizing, a lobster picnic 🦞and collaborative fundraiser for 15 organizations on the frontlines of Boston’s movements for justice and liberation!

Let’s celebrate another year of the partners’ hard work on the frontlines: sustaining the neighborhoods most impacted by COVID, leading the movement for Black lives, uplifting youth voices, and defending communities from the harms of gentrification, policing, deportations, and climate change, among others. Let’s honor that work by nourishing ourselves and our community, raising $200,000 for our movements.

Families and Youth:

Families with children are welcome at the Celebration, and for the first time this year we are offering childcare and youth ticket prices. Youth require a ticket if they have a full meal and seat at the tables – if they will go to childcare or sit in your lap / a highchair they do not need a ticket.

  • Childcare: Youth ages 3-12 are welcome to join our volunteer-run childcare center, located in the nursery on the 2nd floor of the church. Kid-friendly food will be provided. Pre-registration is not required, but please indicate in the registration form how many kids you’ll bring, their ages, and any allergies so that we can plan accordingly. Caregivers will be asked to fill out a waiver form and sign their children in and out.
  • Youth tickets: $25 tickets are available for youth under 18 who plan to sit at event tables.
  • Infants: Youth sitting in strollers, laps, etc. do not need their own ticket.
