Weather did not prevail, as we had a beautiful indoor location for the festivities at the First Parish Church, Universalist, in Malden. The warm atmosphere, surrounded by artwork, framed the event nicely. Three organizations were honored by Malden Grassroots for their commitment to the ideals of community engagement, volunteerism, cultural diversity, human equality, and justice for all.
- Cyber Cafe @ Malden Square
- Muslim American Cultural and Civic Association
- Youth ACT!
Malden Grassroots promotes community change from the bottom up. The group hosts monthly activities such as film showings and discussions and provides support for local grassroots campaigns. Each year it sponsors the Grassroots Community Cookout and Justice Fair that brings together hundreds of local residents and organizations to meet and talk about pressing social and economic issues. A racially and culturally diverse organization, Malden Grassroots believes it will take all of us to address such issues as equal rights, housing, healthcare, racism, poverty, and war at a root level.
