up_logo_smBOSTON, Mass.—On Monday, June 29, a new socially progressive committee will hold an informative open house at 6 p.m. at the Fenway Community Health, 8th Floor Conference Room.

“This networking event will be a great opportunity to introduce ourselves to the public. We will bring the larger community together to premiere the launch of our initiative to provide culturally inclusive programs, events and activities that unify the many marginalized groups we see here in Massachusetts. We’ll be showing the community what our mission is and the barriers we hope to overcome,” said Henry Paquin, chair of the committee.

Formed in the fall of 2014, the Unity Pride Committee will offer programs and events that emphasize inclusivity and the celebration of differences. Within the last year, the nation has been rocked by a series of tragic incidents largely attributed to racism, transphobia, homophobia, religious intolerance, and misogyny.[pullquote]Within the last year, the nation has been rocked by a series of tragic incidents largely attributed to racism, transphobia, homophobia, religious intolerance, and misogyny.  [/pullquote]
