#StandupforBen Ben, a first-year student at Harvard, was a defensive back for the Harvard Crimson football team. During Harvard's first game on September 16, 2017, Ben suffered a catastrophic cervical neck injury and was paralyzed. To let Ben know that he is in our hearts, El Jefe's, together with the Harvard Varsity Club, are sponsoring a "Ben Abercrombie Day" in Harvard Square. http://www.harvardsquare.com/events/ben-abercrombie-day-el-jefes-tagueria

Allston Brighton CDC added an event.

The billion-dollar reconstruction of the Mass Pike Allston interchange is coming! MassDOT's plan is highly auto-oriented, with a new highway and major roads built first and bus and rail projects deferred to the future. We all know our neighborhood is already drowning in traffic. It will only get worse unless big transit improvements come soon. On Dec. 5th, join your neighbors for an introductory overview of the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the Mass Pike Allston Interchange. Come learn of what MassDOT has planned for the neighborhood and how these plans will impact your transit options and quality of life. There are limited opportunities remaining for residents to voice their concerns on this neighborhood altering project, don't miss out!!
