Who we are.
We, the Brookline Equity Coalition (BEC), are a grassroots group of community members. Our goal is to attain progressive municipal policies and governance here in Brookline.
It is our belief that Brookline deserves a town government with strong progressive values. As progressives, we advocate for:
Improving the health & wellbeing of residents.
Funding food security, older adult services, the repair of public housing units, and public education.
Forward-looking, community-driven planning.
Prioritizing addressing the climate crisis, affordable housing, increasing civic participation, meeting residents' needs, and a grassroots approach to charter change.
Principled, open-minded leadership.
Always factoring in racial justice, representation for all genders, LGBTQIA+ liberation, the need for intersectionality, reproductive justice, and support for workers and labor unions.
Ensuring seats at the table for the typically under-represented, meeting the needs of individuals with disabilities or with limited English proficiency, budgeting that reflects progressive priorities, and predictable and regularly scheduled operating overrides.
