PROGRESS


Our role as change agent has already paid off. Working with the Town Select Board, we helped them draft the following pro-diversity, anti-discrimination statement:              

      

  • The Duxbury Board of Selectmen is committed to ensuring that our town is a safe and welcoming community that embraces diversity, equity, and inclusion.
  • We unequivocally condemn discrimination in all its forms. 
  • As elected leaders, we recognize our responsibility to understand and address racial inequality and all other forms of discrimination in Duxbury.                              
  • Change starts at the local level, and better understanding and action in our own community can contribute to effective systemic change at the regional, state, and national levels. 
  • To that end, we will work to educate ourselves, town employees, and town residents on social and racial justice issues.
  • We will review our existing policies, practices, and procedures, and where necessary, we will enact changes to begin to build a stronger, more equitable community, including efforts to hire and retain a more diverse workforce.
  • We will work to ensure that Duxbury is a place where all individuals can live happily, free of fear, and with equal access to opportunities, regardless of race, religion, class, ethnicity, age, ability, sexual orientation or gender identity.                                   
  • Approved unanimously February 1, 2021
  • Select Board member Amy McNab was appointed by the Board to act as liaison to Prejudice Free Duxbury.
