The JP Community

This evening Megumi, Frank, Jae, and I all went to the Neighbors for Neighbors Fall Community Organizing Expo. Somewhere around 45 JP-based nonprofits, social organizations, and causes were represented, and A Far Cry joined the ranks with a table displaying info about our upcoming concerts and our mission, making lots of friends in the process. For the uninitiated, JP stands for Jamaica Plain, which is a neighborhood of Boston southwest of downtown. JP is becoming THE place to live in Boston for artists, musicians, social workers, and interesting people of all ages! Nearly all of the Criers live in JP - I myself moved here just a few months ago. Wandering around checking out the other booths was incredibly inspiring. There is so much energy and so much enthusiasm out there - people really want to do good, and are in fact doing good. A Far Cry was proud to be part of an incredible evening made up of people who don't just talk - they do!
