About this Event

What are your hopes and concerns for your community? What are the most important issues in your community right now?

The Boston Public Library (BPL) is teaming up with the Local Voices Network (LVN) for a project that seeks to record neighborhood conversations on important local topics. These recordings will be shared on a searchable website for journalists, decision-makers, and other local stakeholders to tune into the community’s real concerns.

We need the participation of local community members to make this a success.

Here's how it works:

Step one: You'll join a 4 - 6 person recorded conversation with fellow residents in your community, facilitated by BPL staff or volunteer facilitators. You'll share real concerns, stories, and ideas connected to your experience living in this community.

Step two: Our recorded conversation will then be transcribed, keyworded and posted on a website to be shared with media outlets, local decision-makers, and other neighborhood stakeholders with the goal of offering a new window into issues that are important to our community.

Together, we'll create a platform where everyone is invited to be heard.

Space is limited. RSVPs are necessary for this program. Refreshments will be served.
