The Boston Globe Facility is the press and printing center of the Boston Globe newspaper, which June uses as harbor during her escape.

June is laying in the back of a truck as a Femaleroad courier moves her to a safe location, which looks to be a generic abandoned industrial building, but later reveals to be the home of the Boston Globe newspaper[1].

In the building, June wanders down to the basement, where she stumbles upon a line of nooses hung on the rafters. She then turns to the wall, which is stained with blood and littered with bullet holes. June is horrified and sickened at the sight of what was obviously a massacre, and briefly cries in silence. Later she grabs a box, goes desk to desk and picks stuff from each one to put into it. She sets up a candle vigil for the people who had been murdered downstairs[1].

June is later seen listening to a recording of an interview with an early "Sons of Jacob" member and digging through newspapers cutting out clippings. She pins the clippings to the wall under categories like 'Origins of Gilead', 'Power Structure', 'Militarization' and 'Curtailment of Civil Rights'. Staring on an article under the latter category, she 'tells' the clippings in a voice-over "You were there all the time but no one noticed you"[2].
