We the undersigned advocate for a strong and welcoming Jamaica Plain that includes a Hyde/Jackson Square residential and retail district that reflects the full diversity of the community.

We support retail businesses that serve all of the people of JP and help make JP a destination for peoples of every culture and background.    

We support the arrival of Whole Foods Market at 415 Centre Street in Jamaica Plain and we advocate for the opening of a Latin grocer or co-op in this neighborhood that will be able to serve the needs of those JP residents and others who shopped at Hi-Lo. 

We believe that Whole Foods and a Latin grocer are not mutually exclusive ventures, but businesses that can co-exist and benefit each other in a neighborhood as diverse as Hyde/Jackson Square. 

We believe that businesses in and of themselves do not define a neighborhood but instead reflect the community they serve, particularly a community as unique as JP.   

We expect all businesses in Hyde/Jackson Square and in JP to show that their doors are open to all, not just those who agree with them, look like them, or speak their language. 

We know that the only way to ensure a strong future for this community we love is to ensure a Jamaica Plain for All!

I am writing to advocate for a strong and welcoming Jamaica Plain that includes a Hyde/Jackson Square residential and retail district that reflects the full diversity of the community.

I support retail businesses that serve all of the people of JP and help make JP a destination for peoples of every culture and background.

I support the arrival of Whole Foods Market at 415 Centre Street in Jamaica Plain and we advocate for the opening of a Latin grocer or co-op in this neighborhood that will be able to serve the needs of those JP residents and others who shopped at Hi-Lo.

I believe that Whole Foods and a Latin grocer are not mutually exclusive ventures, but businesses that can co-exist and benefit each other in a neighborhood as diverse as Hyde/Jackson Square.

I believe that businesses in and of themselves do not define a neighborhood but instead reflect the community they serve, particularly a community as unique as JP.

I expect all businesses in Hyde/Jackson Square and in JP to show that their doors are open to all, not just those who agree with them, look like them, or speak their language.

I know that the only way to ensure a strong future for this community we love is to ensure a Jamaica Plain for All!
