The James and Grace Lee Boggs Center

The Boggs Center was founded in 1995 by friends and associates of James Boggs (1919-1993) and Grace Lee Boggs (1915-2015) to honor and continue their legacy as movement activists and theoreticians.

Their aim is to help grassroots activists develop themselves into visionary leaders and critical thinkers who can devise proactive strategies for rebuilding and respiriting our cities and rural communities from the ground up, demonstrate the power of ideas in changing ourselves, our reality, and demystify leadership.

Board members engage in diverse community building activities: youth leadership development, urban agriculture, environmental justice and more.
