The Anti-Racism Team has been working with other interested Melrose and Boston residents and started a successful “Friends of Melrose METCO” group. METCO is a voluntary school integration program working with Boston families and suburban schools.
The Anti-Racism Ministry team invites ANYONE who is interested in participating in this group to join.
In the fall of 2020, FOMM held a very successful and well-attended METCO Tour of Melrose. Over 150 people from Boston and Melrose walked together (socially-distanced in small groups) along Main Street, learning about the city and each other. Parents learned about the places their kids hang-out after school. This tour was followed by a pizza lunch and lots of great conversation. We plan to make this an annual event! A METCO Tour of Boston, hosted by the Boston families, is planned for the spring.
