Bayard Rustin Community Breakfast
Each spring, Babson community members attend this inspiring event, which draws on the spirit of Bayard Rustin's work in human rights, civil rights, and social activism. It is the longest-running event honoring Bayard Rustin's legacy in the country. The event is a fundraiser for Boston AIDS Action Committee and a great way to connect with the LGBTQ+ and ally community in Boston.
