Congregation Beth Elohim is honored to host Rachael Rollins, U.S. attorney for the district of Massachusetts, at the 20th annual Martin Luther King Jr. tribute event. Rollins’s talk is entitled “Racial Justice and Communal Safety: Cultivating MLK’s Legacy.”
An advocate for criminal justice reform, Rollins has worked to push measures to reduce incarceration, correct racial and ethnic disparities, adopt alternatives to traditional prosecution and improve relationships between law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve. She is the first woman to serve as Suffolk County district attorney and the first woman of color to serve as Massachusetts district attorney.
Since taking office in 2019, Rollins has implemented humane and data-supported policies focusing her limited resources on the most violent and serious crimes in keeping Suffolk County safe.
This event is sponsored by Na’aseh, the social action arm of Congregation Beth Elohim. Co-sponsors include Racial Justice for Black Lives, United Church of Christ in Boxborough, St. Matthew’s United Methodist Church, Congregation Beth El of the Sudbury River Valley, Fostering Racial Justice and Indivisible Acton.+ More... - Less...
