[From an email sent to the REAL listserv on October 11, 2021]
Last month we reached out to our town’s School Committee, City Council, and mayoral candidates with a few questions pertaining to race equity in Northampton.
On September 26 we shared responses from the at-large City Council and mayoral candidates leading up to the preliminary election that narrowed each of those fields. Today we’re sharing responses from School Committee candidates and candidates in all other City Council races, in advance of the municipal election coming up on Tuesday, November 2.
We hope you find this information helpful as you make your decisions about who you would like to hold positions of power locally. Please reach out with any questions–and don’t forget to vote on Nov. 2!

p.s. We’re still looking for Spanish translation support–for candidate responses and more broadly. Please email us if this is a service you could provide in some capacity. Thank you!
