Stephanie Everett for State Representative
These are difficult days in Boston and throughout the nation. We are faced with a worldwide pandemic that continues to threaten the physical and economic health of our communities. The politicization of the COVID-19 virus has only made it harder to combat its terrible impact. Like every other challenge, this hurts the vulnerable among us the hardest. dividing and distracting us.
We are also experiencing a national reckoning on race that hasn’t been seen here in decades. Yet this feels different from the other times. Different from busing, different from housing integration, different from the endless heartbreaking stream of news about community violence and police brutality. There are more allies across racial, economic, and geographical lines than ever before, and they are speaking out, too. We have an opportunity to make meaningful, lasting change. We must act.
