Boston 10 Demandments
This petition had 63 supporters
Citing research data, the community activists have formed Boston Communities United (BCU), a growing network of people of African descent, White, and Latino registered voters “frustrated” by the lack of action on many issues concerning people of color from city hall.
“We are concerned that the real issues related to racial discrimination, failing schools, fair housing and discriminatory police practices are not being addressed. We are demanding that all candidates in Boston sign our 10 Demandments package to immediately address the need for new policies and commitments that alleviate the suffering within communities of color in Boston.”
Boston Communities United has listed “10 Demandments” that they will urge each mayoral and city council candidate to sign as a pledge they will commit to as an elected official beginning January 2018. The group will also engage in extensive voter outreach prior to the November 7th mayoral election to educate the public on issues impacting them and urge them to go to the polls.
“There is clear inequity in Boston across the board,” said a statement issued by the group. “We demand change in Boston and expect our political leadership immediately pursue the policies that would help Boston’s communities of color most.”
Change will require everyday people — both those who are most impacted and those allied with them — to join together. Progress will require “changing the narrative, changing hearts and minds.”
We’re building an online movement for racial justice. Join our movement ready to amplify our political voice.
