Meetings with Mayor Walsh

BSAC had two productive meetings with Mayor Marty Walsh last week. 

BSAC members engaged with the Mayor by sharing their experiences with the student walkout, putting forth their vision for youth voice, discussing climate justice, and stating their priorities for the coming year, which include:
  • Community Choice Energy
  • Preventing School Closures
  • Counselors Not Cops, and 
  • Student Vote on the School Committee
We look forward to meeting with the Mayor again and continuing these discussions.
