LAST MONTH, state Senator Jason Lewis hosted a productive discussion among human rights advocates and organizations from Malden, Melrose, Reading, Stoneham, Wakefield and Winchester to discuss common challenges and shared objectives across communities. The network of individuals and groups plans to stay in touch in order to facilitate information sharing and share cross-community opportunities for advocacy and organizing. If you are passionate about human rights or you are involved with a local group working to achieve a human rights-related goal, contact Senator Lewis at [email protected] for more information about this new network.
