Equity is part of the building blocks of resilience and sustainability. We cannot afford to be bystanders to decisions that are made in our names. The continuing pandemic will require us to be more humane, more kind, and more thoughtful in everyway. There can be no celebration of a new year, if we are not requiring that a cohesive system (health, education, housing, transportation, roads, employment and protection of open space) be built that encourages strategies that conserve natural resources (people and open space), does not displace current residents, protecting natural areas, and facilitating connections to the surrounding communities. This is is our Boston; please join us in moving forward as a community.
