On Wednesday, June 8, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., the Boston Branch NAACP will hosting a Racial Discrimination Training at the Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center, located at 650 Dudley Street,Dorchester. The training is co-sponsored with the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights, the Urban League of Eastern Massachusetts' Young Professional's Network (YPN) and the Fair Housing Center of Greater Boston, and supported by the Attorney General's Civil Rights Division and the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD).
What is racial discrimination? How do you prove it? What are the roles of the various local, state and federal agencies and law enforcement entities? How do you respond if you've been a victim of discrimination? What is MCAD and how do you navigate the complaint submission process? What if you're represented by a union? These are just a few of the questions that we plan to address during this three-hour training. Following the training, the Boston Branch NAACP will work with the Fair Housing Center of Greater Boston, the Lawyer's Committee for Civil Rights and possibly a local law school to develop ongoing legal clinics where people can come for assistance with their specific cases.
