On Thursday, Sept. 8 at noon, Tufts University's Hoch Cunningham Lecture Series will feature a discussion with Rev.

She will review the important steps Boston has taken in the past year to demonstrate its leadership in being a Green New Deal city. Topics covered will include the groundbreaking ordinance around building emissions standards, the launch of a green jobs program for environmental justice communities, and the work currently being done around urban tree canopy and school bus electrification.
The event will take place in Breed Memorial Hall, 51 Winthrop Street (at Boston Avenue), Medford.
