THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER.
Dr. Alexandra Piñeros Shields is the Executive Director of the Essex County Community Organization. BEC was proud to award a grant to the Essex County Community Organization last year to aid in their ongoing efforts to foster community relations on the North Shore. Dr. Shields will discuss the collaborative work of her organization to address building a positive dialogue between community members and the Lynn police department. From their website: “ECCO is a diverse network of congregations and organizations across the North Shore building relationships and power to put human dignity at the center of public life. We work together across race, class, and faith lines to ensure that all people on the North Shore can thrive, grow, and dream.”
