Climate Justice Event with Giant Puppets

Amal receives a message from a child.

Friday, September 8, from 6:30 to 7:30pm.

Little Amal is a 12-foot puppet of a 10-year-old Syrian refugee child. She began her 9,000-mile journey in 2021, when she appeared at the border of Turkey to highlight the challenges faced by unaccompanied young refugees and migrants around the world. Since then she has met the Pope, played with children in Poland, danced in the streets of London, and visited the Syrian community in Brooklyn, NYC. Boston will have a chance to welcome Amal and show our support for refugees from September 7-9, as she continues her walk, this time 6,000 miles across the US. She will visit 35 towns and cities on the way to San Diego.

With Extinction Rebellion Boston, our parishioner Pam DiBona helping to plan a program in East Boston for Friday, September 8, from 6:30 to 7:30pm. As she explores this neighborhood of immigrants, she will encounter climate refugees – giant puppets of endangered native species – and help them find their own safe haven among the residents of Eastie. Let Pam know if you’d like to join the procession of fish that will accompany them, or just show up!
