Sunday, April 26

Harriet E. Richards Cooperative House
191 Bay State Rd

In an effort to follow CDC and WHO guidelines and reduce the spread of COVID-19, we are canceling our in-person Alumnae Tea & Annual Meeting. The HERAA Board is exploring options to host an abridged virtual meeting to celebrate our alumnae, induct seniors into HERAA, and conduct our annual Board elections online.

Please continue to save the date if able and visit this page for continued updates.

At this time, we are focused on organizing support for current H.E.R. residents during campus displacements. For more information and to pledge support, please read our letter here.
