Various colleges and universities in the greater Boston area—including Boston College, Boston University, MIT, Fisher College, Brandeis University, Tufts University, and Gordon College—have been working with the Humanist Community Project’s Values in Action to plan HUNGERally, an interfaith event to raise awareness of and provide education about the issues of hunger and homelessness here in Boston.
A rally against hunger that will feature speakers including hunger-relief activists and community faith leaders, as well as students representing a wide range of religious and non-religious perspectives, this event is a first of its kind. Though many Boston-area colleges and universities have groups dedicated to the rapidly growing interfaith movement, this will be the first time they have worked in collaboration to bring their students and community members together over interfaith dialogue and service to others.
HUNGERally will be held this Saturday, February 11th, from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm in Boston University’s College of Arts and Sciences building, Room B12 (take the Green Line B Train to the BU East stop on the T). Speakers will include activists from hunger-relief organizations, as well as representatives of various traditions and communities. Students from colleges across Boston, as well as anyone interested in interfaith work, community service, and social justice, are invited and welcome to attend.
Additionally, donations of canned food will be collected for distribution by Interfaith Social Services.
