The organization provides black men in Springfield with positive role models

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Students from “Black Men of Greater Springfield” took a tour of the Hampden County Hall of Justice on Wednesday.

Hampden District Attorney Anthony Gulluni, along with other officials who work in the court house, spoke to the young men about career opportunities within the judicial system.

Garfield Weston, a 9th grader at Hampden Charter in Chicopee, said, “It was actually kind of amazing to find out and ask questions that are based on what can actually happen, and how the jury and probably the judge hold somebody’s life.”
