Trinity Church is honored to host athlete, author, and activist Alison Mariella Désir April 12-14 for the Anne Berry Bonnyman Symposium weekend.

Alison Mariella Désir is the author of Running While Black: Finding Freedom in a Sport that Wasn’t Built for Us. The Symposium, in partnership with Trinity Boston Connects (TBC), will celebrate the Joy of Running, Belonging, and Community in the context of addressing systemic racism and building supportive, inclusive, and equitable communities.
