Network Statement and Resources against anti-Asian Racism

As the Network for Social Justice, we work to enhance holistic community well-being by promoting inclusion and confronting stereotypes of all kinds. Accordingly, we not only want to support the community in keeping families safe, but we also call attention to disquieting and troublesome viewpoints that erode the inclusive vision we have for this town, and which we know the majority of our residents share. You can read our full statement against anti-Asian racism here and sign on to the Winchester Select Board’s AAPI resolution.

Come join our small and dedicated team in our organizing work in the suburbs! We are currently seeking a part-time Program Coordinator. Job description can be found here
