Mission

To encourage welcoming and inclusive communities by collaborating with local residents and organizations to promote social justice.

Vision

The Nashoba Area Social Justice Alliance was formed in May 2020 in response to the racial, social, and civil unrest unfolding across the nation, and is open to residents of Stow, Bolton, Lancaster, and surrounding Massachusetts towns.

We are committed to working for intersectional justice and equality for all people, focusing on areas of particular need as they arise. We are continue to educate ourselves on the history of systemic racism and the steps to dismantle it, raising anti-racist children, and building a safe, welcoming space for our community. This is an ongoing effort, and we are here for a marathon, not a sprint.

We believe that big changes can come by taking steps at the local level. Areas of focus will include working with the Nashoba Regional School District, local law enforcement and government, and offering citizen action opportunities with the goal of working for social justice one small change at a time.

Welcome to the movement! Keep up with us via email to find out how you can take action.
