Description

Join Consciously Exposed, in collaboration with the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce and City Awake, for a six days FUN festival of conversation and celebration of Boston's Millennials of Color. The Boston Foundation and City Awake’s City of Millennials report shows that Greater Boston’s millennial population is more racially and ethnically diverse and more educated than ever before. However, it also exposed the many barriers that population faces in Boston as well. That is why Fierce Urgency of Now is so important. A 6-day festival September 20-25 dedicated to talking about these issues and convening young Bostonians of color to share their experiences.

FAQs

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Highly Recommend taking MBTA Station from Orange Line Service to Back Bay Station - 5 minutes walk to 31st James St. Also steps away from the Arlington Light Rail MBTA station for Green Line and within a 10-minute walk from the Tufts Medical Center station for the Orange Line.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
