ABOUT

FORJ is a coalition of families in and around Newton, MA who believe change starts at home and in our own communities.



WE LEARN

We are a learning community educating ourselves, our children, our schools, and our communities about race, racism, culture, and identity.



WE CONNECT

We strive to achieve safe and welcoming environments that enhance the well-being of all people. We promote healing and connection between individuals and communities.



WE SUPPORT

We speak out against injustice, support our kids to be upstanders, and take action to address bias and inequity.

How we challenge ourselves to improve our society

From lectures on race and diversity, to discussion groups, community events, Dynamic Diversity trainings and more, we follow the lead from our communities and help families like ours foster inclusion in our city and schools.
