FORJ is a coalition of families in and around Newton, MA who believe change starts at home and in our own communities.
We are a learning community educating ourselves, our children, our schools, and our communities about race, racism, culture, and identity.
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 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.
