Clean Up BPPA

a campaign to remove offensive rhetoric from the Pax Centurion newsletter

Radio Boston reader feedback on the Pax Centurion

On Friday July 6, we talked about a Boston Phoenix expose on the Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association, and the bigoted opinions that appeared in their official union newsletter, the “Pax Centurion.”
