Boston City Councilor At-Large Michelle Wu Launches Boston Stays Home Challenge to Build Community During COVID-19 Pandemic


Boston City Councilor At-Large Michelle Wu Launches Boston Stays Home Challenge to Build Community During COVID-19 Pandemic

Boston, MABoston City Councilor At-Large Michelle Wu launched the Boston Stays Home social media challenge today to emphasize the importance of staying home to limit physical contact with others and slow the spread of COVID-19 while strengthening community. 

The challenge calls for Boston residents to collectively take action each day this week, from taking an online yoga class, to supporting local small businesses, while promoting public health through social distancing. 

“Our goal is to raise awareness while bringing people together during a time of uncertainty and stress,” said Councilor Wu. “As we work on policy solutions for financial relief, food access, and equitable recovery, we also want to remind everyone of the importance of coming together. We’ve launched this challenge to create space for Boston residents to connect with one another across shared activities with a week of action to build community while staying home.”

The schedule for the #BostonStaysHome Challenge is:
  • Meditation Monday, March 30: Take a free yoga class with Four Corners Yoga & Wellness or another studio
  • Takeout Tuesday, March 31: Order takeout & share a picture for our virtual community potluck
  • Policy Wednesday, April 1: Tune into the Boston City Council’s weekly meeting at 12pm.
  • Small Business Thursday, April 2: Support a local business by making a purchase online, giving a shout-out on social media, or leaving a positive review.
  • Fitness Friday, April 3: Go for a bike ride, walk, or run in your neighborhood and share your experience.
  • Social Saturday: Set up a virtual brunch with friends and family via FaceTime or Google Hangouts.
  • Inspiration Sunday: Share an uplifting quote or message and tag us on social media to amplify.
