Meaningful opportunities for Somerville residents
One of the best ways to address historic and ongoing economic inequity is the nurturing of good and accessible jobs for all Somerville residents.
"We need to focus on meaningful opportunities for residents living in vulnerable communities; women, and single-parent families, often immigrants and people of color, who too often shoulder the weight of poverty."-Katjana Ballantyne
We will work for better policies, increased funding, and legislation for economic justice at every level until we are truly a welcoming city for everyone. We will partner with and empower the local non-profit organizations doing this work in our communities, and with our allies in state and federal leadership.
