As community agency connected to a public school bearing the name of an African-American educator and civic leader, we were interested to discover this article, shared with us by a friend: https://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2018/06/13/names-whose-time-has-come/gXMw3EbiEOAef9Are3HClI/story.html

    Not enough Boston schools are named for women. Here are some naming suggestions - The Boston Globe
    How is this possible? Of 125 Boston public schools, only 10 are named for women. You read that right. Ten. And guess how many are named after men. Oh, how about 75. Pathetic! It's 2018, in one of the most progressive cities in the country. Can't Boston do better than this?

"Culture is not a mere afterthought or an add-on, but a key contributor to urban economic growth. But in fueling neighborhood growth and development, it has also played a role in rising housing prices, contributing to gentrification." - http://bit.ly/2JQfCVF

    Does Culture Follow Economic Development in Cities, or Cause It?
    A new study, drawing on 1.5 million images of cultural spaces in London and New York, finds that cultural capital is a key contributor to urban economic growth. One of the big questions in urbanism is the degree to which culture shapes economic development.

LED Bulb Swap @ Riverfest (Sat. June 2nd, 11a-6p) Calling all Cambridge residents! Come get free LED Bulbs at the Cambridge River Festival this Saturday! From 11a-6p at the Cambridge Side Galleria, the Cambridge Energy Alliance will be swapping up to three incandescent or CFL lightbulbs for LED bulbs. LED lightbulbs have many benefits. For example, LED lightbulbs: - use 5-6 times less energy than incandescent bulbs - use 40% less energy than CFL bulbs - completely mercury-free - last up to 20 years We are offering standard A19 and BR30 LED lightbulbs, which will fit most lamps/fixtures and can be used for recessed lighting. Exchanges are limited to 3 per household, until supplies run out. The CEA wants to help residents live more efficiently and switching to LED bulbs is a great place to start!
