We, the students of MFOL: Boston, are joining students across the country to demand that our lives are prioritized over access to guns. We seek to amplify and emphasize the voices of communities of color, who are both disproportionately affected by gun violence and silenced in their calls for reform.

The First Church was severely damaged by fire on March 29, 1968.

The church was rebuilt to a design by architect Paul Rudolph which preserved the tower, porch, and end wall, and created an amphitheater-like entry on Marlborough Street. The rebuilt church was dedicated in 1972 as the First and Second Church in Boston.
