Developers want to destroy the St. James African Orthodox Church building and its legacy at 50 Cedar Street in Roxbury. They want to tear it down to make condos. These condos will displace people from this neighborhood, and they will destroy history. This church is connected to Marcus Garvey and the Civil Rights movement, and they want to destroy that.

There is something YOU can do! Sign this petition to support landmarking this church. Highland Park Neighborhood Coalition (HPNC) is petitioning the Boston Landmarks Commission to preserve this building for the future and to reclaim Roxbury from the developers and greed that are destroying it. Sign this petition to save our landmark, and add your support to taking back this neighborhood.
