Franklin Area Mom's "Lessons for Littles" (video)

"How do you navigate conversations with your young children about topics such as race, diversity, inclusion, and equity? 

Watch as Jamele Adams (educator, poet, and activist), Dr. Ashley Cameron (licensed child and adult psychologist), Julie Parsons (Executive Director of the Cambridge-Ellis School and veteran kindergarten teacher), Sofie Chouinard (local high school student), and Mia Story (local high school student) discuss the importance of having race-related conversations with young children, and when and how to have these conversations. The discussion is moderated by Franklin Town Councilor Cobi Frongillo

This event was sponsored by Franklin Area Moms (www.franklinareamoms.com) and Franklin Area Against Racism (FAAR). Video by Franklin TV."

FM #580 - Community Conversation on Housing & Race - 07/14/21 (audio)

FM #580 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 580 in the series. 


This session of the radio show shares the Community Conversation virtual meeting on Housing and Race coordinated by the Franklin Area Against Racism group (FAAR) and held on Wednesday, July 14, 2021


Town Councilor Cobi Frongillo moderated the discussion with featured guests 

  • Jim Johnston (longtime Franklin resident and historian) 

  • Bryan Taberner (Franklin’s Director of Planning and Community Development)

  • Jesse Kanson-Benanav (Executive Director of Abundant Housing MA) 


The discussion focused on how Franklin's housing policies and practices have fostered socio-economic inequities and worked to reduce diversity in the community over the years.


Franklin TV recorded and will be making available the video of this virtual meeting. When available, I’ll include the links here as well.


The audio recording runs about 1 hour and 20 minutes, so let’s listen to the Community Conversation on Housing and Race.
