The Black Ministerial Alliance of Greater Boston (BMA) was founded during the 1960’s civil rights movement with a mission to provide spiritual nurture to clergy, advocacy, and program services for the larger Black community. Starting as an interdenominational group of 20 clergies, the BMA has grown to become an inclusive alliance of churches, faith, and community-based organizations reaching around 20,000 ethnically-diverse parishioners and clients in Greater Boston. Today, the BMA has merged its efforts with the Boston Ten Point Coalition. The Boston Ten Point Coalition has been around since the early 1990s. They focus on violence prevention and youth reformation in churches and the larger community. This focus helps them redirect the lives of at-risk Black and Latino youth.
