And so it begins.

Refreshing #SCOTUS site while waiting on a hearing in #Dorchester hoping to vacate the decades-old case which resulted in my client's deportation eager to learn which of our rights the elder gods deign fit to preserve. Thurgood Marshall is on the wall, + he doesn't look happy
I continue to believe they'll hold Dobbs until the very end--as they always do for the big ones--but literally on the edge of my seat for the #MPP decision
In this courtroom full of Black faces a white judge is being assisted by white clerks, white court officers, + a white probation rep while white prosecutors + defense attorneys (including me ofc) litigate cases controlled by white-majority SJC + SCOTUS rulings. Welcome to Boston

Today, when I phoned him, I called him Dad. For years, I called him by his first name & celebrated my Mom on Mother's and Father's Day. Grace, his sobriety & time have allowed us to heal. When he was absent & unhealthy, I both missed & resented him.
But he never stopped trying to reach me, writing me, sending me books, informing my love of literature, poetry & my Black consciousnes. He made sure I knew that I was loved & missed.
7 yrs ago, he walked me down the aisle at my wedding. Today, he & his son in law, (also a Cancerian) laugh often & deeply with one another, so do we. To those in estranged relationships, know that, healing & forgiveness are possible... and glorious, too!

An important math lesson from your local Boston #archaeology team. Like many of you, we were wondering how many Dunkies medium iced coffees (extra extra) would take to fill in the Mary L. Pierce well in Ronan Park, aka the #DorchesterSinkhole. Well, your wait is over. 1/
Someone shovel off the @DotSinkhole so they can hear this, this is important. 2/
As every news outlet in the region has reported, the Dorchester Sinkhole in fact a 19th century well built around 1818 or 1872 that was buried under a bunch of fill to make Ronan Park around 1912. Yeah, old news. 3/

I'm in DC for work but couldn't let the sun go down w/out sharing some of my fav #DorchesterDay moments. This diverse, close knit, civically engaged neighborhood is where I made a home, grew a family, put roots down, found love & community. Happy Dorchester Day! #bospoli #mapoli
It is impossible not to think of those who have passed away in recent years & loved #Dorchester with their entire being & made it a place where those #OFD & #DBC could love & thrive. Thank you Joe Chaisson, Vince Droser, Marie Marshall, Pat O'Neill. Rest in peace.

We're really excited about #RegionalRail Phase 1 being included in this bond bill. This is a transformative project that reimagines what our Commuter Rail network can do for commuters, students, and residents across the region! 👩🏾‍💼🧕🏻👨🏻‍🦼👴🏿👨‍💻
#RegionalRail is about more capacity and more service, it's about #equity, and it's about economic development and more. Thanks to #mapoli for listening. With a few more amendments we can make this a reality.
#RegionalRail Phase 1 is about more trains during peak to relieve congestion 😟on the 🚞 rails and the 🚙🚗 road. In some cases the number of train during the peak (6:30-9:30 or 4-8) will increase by 50%!!! That's thousands of seats on nearly every corridor in and out of Boston!
