In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings and the other tragic events that followed, the Cambridge Peace Commission, Cambridge Public Health Department, and the Riverside Trauma Center are working together to provide an opportunity for Cambridge residents to gather and share their thoughts and experiences, and to support each other.

The bombings and the events that followed were traumatic. All of us may experience a variety of reactions and feelings. Some of us may be wondering how this could happen in our city and what it might mean for our community.

This will be a safe, supportive, confidential, and respectful space to share your story – and to help us all make sure that we have the support we need to take care of each other and ourselves. This facilitated discussion will be guided to help us find ways to talk about what happened, understand more about how people react to extraordinary events, share our own reactions, and look at how we can move forward in a positive way.

While an RSVP is not required, it is helpful. You can send an email to or call 617.349.4694.

This is a scent-free event. Out of consideration for people with environmental illness and/or multiple chemical sensitivity, please refrain from using perfume or other scented products. For sign language interpreters or other accommodations, please contact the Cambridge Peace Commission at 617.349.6155 (voice) or 617.492.0235 (TTY) or e-mail
