Overdue: Confronting Race and Racism in Newton is a coalition of organizations and individuals that aims to equip and empower our community with the understanding, knowledge, and skills to actively fight racism both in Newton and beyond. They provide residents with opportunities to listen, to learn, and to act in order to dismantle systemic racism within our city.
