Human Rights Day Vote of Selectmen

Vote of Board of Selectmen 12/20/2016

In recognition of Human Rights Day, we wish to remind all our residents that Needham is committed to creating and fostering a welcoming and safe community for all who live and work here. This commitment means we reject discrimination or acts of hate based on a person's race, color, gender identity, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, citizenship, ancestry, family/marital status, ability, source of income, military status, or age. Further, we remain diligent in celebrating and practicing diversity, inclusion, and respect in every possible aspect of life in Needham. We therefore ask our community to recognize Human Rights Day, finding the humanity within each other and to stand united with those most vulnerable among us.
