More than 40 people attended LIPSTICK’s November leadership training at the Grove Hall Library. The training was dedicated to the Hon. Thomas M. Menino, Boston’s beloved Mayor who passed away earlier in the week.
Workshop leaders talked about the Mayor’s legacy and how his Mayors Against Illegal Guns Coalition inspired LIPSTICK to focus on the origins of guns used in crime.
LIPSTICK Field Director Kim Odom announced that LIPSTICK’s Beacon Awards will be renamed in honor of Mayor Menino to recognize courage and persistence in the face of adversity. We’re humbled to carry on in his name.
