The products of institutionalized racism—police brutality, mass incarceration, gentrification, separate and unequal schools, and an ever-growing wealth gap between Black and White Americans—cause pain and frustration for many in our South End/Lower Roxbury community and throughout Greater Boston. Now approaching our 125th anniversary, United South End Settlements’ philosophy of “neighbors helping neighbors” has taken on new meaning: our community has transformed from a predominantly low-income, immigrant community to the neighborhood with the greatest wealth disparity in Boston. Micro-segregation in the South End prevents neighbors from building bridges across differences and creating an inclusive community.
