Welcome to the Sacco and Vanzetti Commemoration Society Webpage!
The year 2007 marked the 80th anniversary of the execution of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti. The previous year, 2006, a dedicated group of activists carried out a parade from the Stony Brook Park in Jamaica Plain to the Forest Hills Cemetery where the bodies of Sacco & Vanzetti were cremated after their execution.

Sacco and Vanzetti Commemoration Society Mission
The Sacco and Vanzetti Commemoration Society exists to preserve the memory of Sacco and Vanzetti's struggle to radically change society. We want to educate our neighbors about Massachusetts' radical history, and draw connections between the struggles of Sacco and Vanzetti and similar struggles today. We stand against the death penalty and political persecution as well as the persecution and scapegoating of immigrants.
