Action Required: Elected School Committee

Mayor Michelle Wu has indicted that she's not in favor of an elected School Committee, despite the fact that 80% of Bostonians made their voices heard in the 2022 election.

We need you and everyone in your network to send the message that this must be a priority for the Mayor and City Council.

Here's how:

  1. Use our Action Network campaign tool to send Mayor Wu an email that you want an elected Boston School Committee and that you expect her to sign these important petitions.

  2. Call the mayor's office at 617-635-4500

  3. It's quick and easy to leave your message with a staffer and go on record in support of democratic governance in Boston Public Schools.

  4. Share this information with other parents and among your networks on social media, in- person, and at community events. 

Will you speak up to make sure the Mayor and City Council know how important this change is to Bostonians like you?
