Statement of Boston Community Leaders

Statement of Boston Community Leaders


BOSTON -- Today Mayor Martin J. Walsh joined a wide list of elected officials, clergy, and community leaders to co-sign the following statement ahead of this evening's community meeting. 

Boston is a City rooted proudly in the spirit of freedom and strength. We strive to be a City where our residents can express themselves, and to engage in meaningful discussion and efforts to improve the most difficult issues in our society.

We recognize Boston's history and celebrate how far we have come, but we are acutely aware of the disparities that we continue to see today. We see them in outcomes in the foundations for success, from education and public health, to housing and jobs. Our city and state government and the agencies we represent are committed to being responsive and relevant, and to facilitating meaningful discussion.

We echo the sentiment of community leaders, elected officials, and clergy nationwide, calling for unity and peaceful demonstrations, and encouraging all to work together to create real, lasting change. Boston can continue a proud tradition of leadership and use this moment as an opportunity to recommit ourselves to uniting for a better Boston.
