Anne Berry Bonnyman Symposium

The 2015 Inaugural Event "We Still Have a Dream: END RACISM"

Trinity Church in the City of Boston

January 18, 2015

The mission of the Anne Berry Bonnyman Symposium is to give Trinity Church a living platform for addressing systemic racism in our church and community. Parishioners pray that the Symposium will sustain participants with courage and strength to take concrete actions towards the creation of an antiracist environment by presenting public events that promote deep introspection regarding racism and related social justice matters. These events will include various activities to strengthen the resolve and the dedication required to create a community anchored in the deepest Christian beliefs. The Symposium honors the Reverend Anne Berry Bonnyman (ret.) for her active commitment to social justice and the eradication of racism.
