Boston Flashmob for Living Wages

When I was a pastor in the Boston area, I got into the social justice opportunities that my good friend Anthony sent to me, particularly the protests for living wages for hotel workers, security guards, produce workers at Shaws, etc. As a clergyperson, it was my honor to offer a religious presence to remind people that God is on the side of the oppressed.

So I'm SUPER sad to have missed this particular protest. I doubt I woulda been rockin' with these folks, but it would have been great firsthand!

So in solidarity and so others can see the creative joy that beckons people to ask what is wrong with the world, here's a protest of unfair wages and firings of hotel workers at the Boston Hyatt.



Genius! Keep up the good work!

Oh my goodness! I'm in this video! But alas, I am behind the left pillar and you cannot see my stellar moves.
