A large crowd gathered at the Bethel AME Church in Jamaica Plain last Thursday evening (Feb. 2) to address health care, affordable housing, and criminal justice reform. The crowd, which overflowed from the church’s main hall, was made up of more than 800 members of the Greater Boston Interfaith Organization (GBIO). Thursday’s event was dubbed “For Such a Time as This,” referencing a biblical story about stepping up in times of crisis.
