Exec. Dir. Horace Small of the Union of Minority Neighborhoods comes on our show next week, Tuesday, April 5th at 2:30 PM Eastern. His group attacks the big problems of people of color in Boston and Massachusetts.

The UMN goes right to the crucial issues for black and Latino residents:
- High incarceration rates
- Low representation in the MA House and Senate — none in Congress from here
- Low HS graduation rates
- High unemployment, particularly for black men
Listen in as Small describes training and other organizing, coalition building, and going at these issues from many angles.
