Confronting Economic Injustice: The Story of Parcel C

Boston’s Chinatown has long been the physical, economic, and cultural center for Chinese immigrants.  Chinatown has also long fought for community control of affordable housing and economic justice. Join us for a conversation about the story of Parcel C, Chinatown’s success in fighting against institutional expansion and reclaiming this parcel for community use.
