Black Lives Matter

Instead of a single organizational statement as our community and our nation react to the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis and countless other acts of racist violence in our nation, we asked our staff to share their thoughts and feelings individually. These powerful and painful words serve as MAHA’s collective statement. Black lives matter.

Turns out a virtual Taste of Dorchester is fun too!

It was an engaging 75 minutes with a couple of great conversations with Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley and City Councilor Annissa Essaibi-George and demonstrations from Ice Creamsmith, Family Affair Restaurant & Catering, Irie Jamaican Style Restaurant and Boston Harbor Distillery.

MAHA raised $12,149 to be split between our programs and a Dorchester restaurant relief fund. If you missed it (or were shut out because of our technical problems) you can watch the fun and figure out which Dorchester restaurant you want to try next.
