RUNNING FOR 26 DAYS FROM APRIL 15 TO MAY 10

 

 

"I actually do not think there is a consistency between the way we responded as a city to the marathon tragedy and how we have responded to other social justice issues. I do not think the city has come together on any other event as they did for the marathon...This was the first time in my lifetime that I have seen the city come together like this.” - Attack Survivor Brittany Loring "Strong is a weird, interesting word. It is not necessarily even that we are stronger but the idea that our lives are experiences of the good and the bad that make us who we are. In a way stronger means adding to the character of who we are, our wisdom, our maturity, and all the rest. It is the idea that events can in some way create who we are."
- Inaugural Poet Richard Blanco We seek to remember the 2013 marathon tragedy and the city's extraordinary response to these events by catalyzing 26 days of awareness on issues of education, health care, homelessness and immigration that exist at the heart of this city and channeling the Boston Strong energy toward them to promote actions that help Boston become stronger. A book about the meaning of Boston Strong and making this city stronger Featuring contributions from Boston Marathon winner Jack Fultz, Boston Globe photographer John Tlumacki, Haley House Bakery Cafe, Boston Public Health Commission, Partners in Health and many other changemakers and social justice organizations across the city of Boston
