There is no denying that 2020 has proved to be a challenging year on so many levels. Now, more than ever, we need to support our local elected officials who are fighting the good fight. Join us, in a birthday fundraising celebration for Will Mbah so he can continue to have the resources needed to run and win city-wide elections. During these trying times of racial injustice and COVID-19, and as the only person of color on the city council, Will has fought for relief and justice. This isn't new for Will. During his time in office, he has fought to provide a voice for the sometimes voiceless in our community- our undocumented neighbors, our black/brown/immigrant business owners facing gentrification, our working class residents. He fought hard and spoke out to get the budget to provide living wages and jobs to paraprofessionals in our schools, who are largely made up of women of color. He submitted a policy resolution for the Mayor, to create a civilian oversight board for our police department. He has fought for relief aid for restaurants and artists and is working hard to prevent mass eviction after the state and local eviction moratorium end. But his work is not finished, there is still so much more on the front of equity and economic inequality left to tackle.
One thing you might not know, running a city-wide at-large campaign is very expensive- mailers, literature for door knocking, door hangers, food for volunteers, voter database subscriptions etc. Will is going to need all of our support to continue to be our city councilor fighting for equity and justice.
Please join on us on Zoom on Thursday, October 15th at 6pm (Will's actual B-day!) for a festive night of music from Ward 2's Kirk Etherton and remarks from long time Somerville resident Henry Parker and State Representative Mike Connolly. Please consider going to Will's Act Blue account HERE to give now or at the event. Together, we can create and shape the community we live in!
When you RSVP below, we will send you a Zoom link for the event!
