Changes in Boston City Council’s Committees

Racial Justice

The Bay State Banner featured an article on recent changes in the Boston City Council.  The Audit and Oversight Committee, which paid special interest to the level of diversity in the city’s hiring practices, was dissolved.

“Continued attention on bringing and maintaining diversity in law enforcement and firefighting is of great importance, especially as many officers of color retire and diversity wanes,” said Iván Espinoza-Madrigal, the Executive Director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Economic Justice.
