From the mayor’s office..
Please join Newton Mayor Setti Warren on Monday Jan. 16 at the 49th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Newton Community Celebration. Convened by the City of Newton, The Foundation for Racial, Ethnic, & Religious Harmony, Interfaith Clergy Association, and the Newton School Department, this annual tradition celebrates and honors the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.
In his keynote remarks, Mayor Warren will highlight the One Newton initiative and action steps our community can take now to support inclusion. The mission of One Newton is to build a welcoming and inclusive city for all – to strive to understand the perspective of our fellow community members and to work together to strengthen our city. A group of individuals representing clergy, parents, police, NPS personnel, students, and other community organizations has been meeting for a year to begin this effort.
Mayor Warren will ask members of the Newton community to sign onto the One Newton pledge to demonstrate the commitment to civil discourse and assuring that everyone in Newton – no matter their current circumstances – can count on the support of the City and their neighbors to meet the challenges of the 21st century in achieving their full potential.
