At its April 8 meeting, the board of the League of Women Voters unanimously adopted the Town’s Needham Unites Against Racism Initiative (NUARI) Vision Statement, Guiding Principles, and Intentional Practices. The Select Board adopted these on March 23, 2021. In their discussion, the Select Board suggested that in addition to town entities, Needham organizations should consider adopting.

The LWV-Needham board will consider in the coming year how to work toward the principals and practices outlined by NUARI. The board also expressed appreciation to the NUARI committee and process.
