Beyond Walls is a close and impactful partner of Lynn Public Schools. We are mission aligned.

Whether hiring students to work on important community initiatives, such as WaSH & FoLD, or providing a platform for Lynn’s youth to tell their story in prose or through art or photograph in the midst of the pandemic and nationwide unrest, Beyond Walls seeks thoughtful and creative means to elevate voice, empower the historically marginalized, create awareness, and stimulate positive change.

There is clearly a movement afoot in Lynn. Community based organizations, schools, and interested citizens are coming together to address some of the longstanding issues in our community. The movement is happening in a very public and collaborative way.

Beyond Walls continues to play a pivotal role in shaping the path forward of this movement and providing the space and the tools for participation.

I, for one, am deeply grateful for their efforts.
