"Why 2 Bostons?" Action

  • District Hall 75 Northern Avenue Boston, MA, 02210 United States (map)

Kick off the Campaign for Wealth and Income & demand the new ordinance: "Good Jobs for Boston Residents"

There are 2 Bostons.

  • 3/4 of Boston jobs go to suburban residents, while we are being displaced
  • Boston's own data says people of color are tracked into low wage occupations and industries
  • Disparities are stark: median income for a white resident with a 4 year college degree is $70,000 but for a Black resident it is just $39,000

We pay, we should benefit.

  • $18 billion in public funds for the Seaport alone - and more in other locations
  • Our taxes are up with a disproportionate burden on tenants. Real estate assessments are up %55 in just the last mayoral term
