Creating Community: A Social Justice Artwork Project

Through a unique collaboration, the Legal Services Center was the site of an art dedication on February 26th titled Creating Community:  A Social Justice Artwork Project.  The artists and guests of honor at the event were more than 50 sixth-graders from the Helen Y. David Leadership Academy in Dorchester, along with their teachers and the school’s executive director.  The children’s artworks—which speak to issues of community and justice and include paintings, drawings, collages, and masks—will be on permanent display in the Center’s library.   Harvard Law School Dean Martha Minow and 3L Blake Strode, a Skadden Fellowship award winner and alum of the Center’s Post-Foreclosure Clinic, were the featured speakers at the art dedication, which the children kicked off with moving descriptions of what inspired their art.
