Mayor Thomas McGee and Lynn Racial Justice Coalition Share Progress
After One Year of Meetings: Posted July 2021
Mayor Thomas McGee and the Lynn Racial Justice Coalition (LRJC) are pleased to share the progress and updates on their collaboration to improve racial equity in the City of Lynn.

In the wake of the murders of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor and the nationwide reckoning on race, the LRJC was formed initially through an effort to pursue racial justice by securing funding for an unarmed crisis response team in the FY21 Budget.

In June of 2020, Nicole McClain, of Prevent the Cycle, filed a citizen’s petition to request a public hearing to discuss a number of topics related to racial justice including, reactivating the Human Rights Commission, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Training for all City of Lynn Employees and a number of suggested police reforms such as review of the Use of Force Policy and the implementation of Police worn body cameras. 

Since the events of last summer, there have been a number of actions and accomplishments made by Mayor McGee and the City of Lynn in collaboration with the Lynn Racial Justice Coalition, which includes:

  • Mayor McGee made a commitment to meet monthly with the LRJC to strategize on a broader range of issues that would advance racial justice in the City of Lynn. As an initial sign of support after the first meetings, Mayor McGee established a $25,000 Equity and Inclusion Assessment Fund to support this work in the FY21 City of Lynn budget, which was later approved by the Lynn City Council.

  • A public hearing occurred on October 24th, 2020, in response to the petition filed by Prevent the Cycle. After that hearing, the City Council voted to request that the Mayor examine the issues that were discussed at the public hearing in partnership with the LRJC:

    - The implementation of Police worn body cameras
    - The creation of an Unarmed Crisis Response Unit
    - Establishing a Civilian Review Board of the Police in the City of Lynn

  • The Lynn Police Department Use of Force Policy was updated and the Mayor negotiated and reached an agreement with the Lynn Police Association to implement Police body worn cameras on all Patrol Officers in December of 2020. The body worn cameras program was fully implemented in all Lynn Police Patrol Officers as of the end of April.

  • The City is also currently participating in a technical assistance grant program to establish a City of Lynn Racial Equity Municipal Action Plan in partnership with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, Federal Reserve Bank of Boston & the Government Alliance on Race & Equity.

  • The Mayor worked with the LRJC to establish the City’s first ever Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer, and Faustina Cuevas started in this role last month.

  • The LRJC has been working on building momentum for the creation of an Unarmed Crisis Response Team within the City of Lynn. Initial efforts for this have included preliminary research by students from the Northeastern University Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy.

    • The Mayor included in his FY22 Budget, which was passed by the City Council on Tuesday, June 22nd, a $500,000-line item to fund the further research and Phase 1 implementation of the All Lynn Emergency Response Team (ALERT). This investment reflects the City’s commitment to addressing systemic racism and pursuing equitable public safety for all.

      Using the Northeastern students’ report as a roadmap starting point, the City is now onboarding a consultant who will work in consultation with the LRJC and a number of other City and community stakeholders, to further research, guide, advise, and develop the planning, design, and implementation details of a feasible Phase 1 ALERT model that will be successful for our City.

The Lynn Racial Justice Coalition is made up of the following Groups and Members:

  • Diverse People United- Neil Whittredge & Anthony Coleman

  • Essex County Community Organization- Reverend Bernadette Hickman-Maynard (LRJC Co-Chair), Darrell Murkison, and Brenda Womack

  • Local 201 Civil Rights Committee - Eugene Anderson

  • Lynn United for Change - Isaac Simon Hodes, Goldean Graham, and Helina Fontes

  • New Lynn Coalition - Jeff Crosby, Maria Carrasco, and Jonathon Feinberg

  • North Shore Juneteenth Association - Nicole McClain

  • Prevent The Cycle - Adriana Paz (LRJC Co-Chair)

El alcalde Thomas McGee y el Lynn Racial Justice Coalition comparten el progreso después de un año de reuniones - Publicado en julio de 2021

El alcalde Thomas McGee y la Lynn Racial Justice Coalition (LRJC) se complacen en compartir el progreso y las actualizaciones de su colaboración para mejorar la equidad racial en la ciudad de Lynn.

A raíz de los asesinatos de George Floyd y Breonna Taylor y el ajuste de cuentas nacional sobre la raza, el LRJC se formó inicialmente a través de un esfuerzo por perseguir la justicia racial al asegurar fondos para un equipo de respuesta a crisis desarmado en el presupuesto del año fiscal 21.

En junio de 2020, Nicole McClain, de Prevent the Cycle, presentó una petición ciudadana para solicitar una audiencia pública para discutir una serie de temas relacionados con la justicia racial, incluida la reactivación de la Comisión de Derechos Humanos, Capacitación sobre diversidad, equidad e inclusión para todos los empleados de la ciudad de Lynn y una serie de reformas policiales sugeridas, como la revisión de la Política de uso de la fuerza y ​​la implementación de cámaras corporales usadas por la policía.

Desde los eventos del verano pasado, ha habido una serie de acciones y logros realizados por el alcalde McGee y la ciudad de Lynn en colaboración con la Lynn Racial Justice Coalition, que incluye:

El alcalde McGee se comprometió a reunirse mensualmente con el LRJC para elaborar estrategias sobre una gama más amplia de temas que promoverían la justicia racial en la ciudad de Lynn. Como señal inicial de apoyo después de las primeras reuniones, el alcalde McGee estableció un Fondo de Evaluación de Equidad e Inclusión de $25,000 para apoyar este trabajo en el presupuesto de la Ciudad de Lynn para el año fiscal 21, que luego fue aprobado por el Concejo Municipal de Lynn.

Se realizó una audiencia pública el 24 de octubre de 2020, en respuesta a la petición presentada por Prevent the Cycle. Después de esa audiencia, el Concejo Municipal votó para solicitar que el alcalde examine los temas que se discutieron en la audiencia pública en asociación con la LRJC:

- La implementación de cámaras corporales de la policía
- La creación de una Unidad de Respuesta a Crisis Desarmada
- Establecimiento de una Junta de Revisión Civil de la Policía en la ciudad de Lynn

Se actualizó la Política de Uso de la Fuerza del Departamento de Policía de Lynn y el alcalde negoció y llegó a un acuerdo con la Asociación de Policía de Lynn para implementar cámaras corporales en todos los oficiales de patrulla de la policía de Lynn en diciembre de 2020. El programa de cámaras corporales se implementó por completo en todos los oficiales de patrulla de la policía de Lynn a finales de abril.

La Ciudad también participa actualmente en un programa de subvenciones de asistencia técnica para establecer un Plan de Acción Municipal de Equidad Racial de la Ciudad de Lynn en asociación con el Metropolitan Area Planning Council, el Banco de Reserva Federal de Boston y Government Alliance on Race and Equity.

El alcalde trabajó con el LRJC para establecer la primera oficial de diversidad, equidad e inclusión de la ciudad, y Faustina Cuevas comenzó en este cargo el mes pasado.

El LRJC ha estado trabajando en generar impulso para la creación de un Equipo de Respuesta a Crisis Desarmado dentro de la Ciudad de Lynn. Los esfuerzos iniciales para esto han incluido una investigación preliminar realizada por estudiantes del Centro Dukakis de Política Urbana y Regional de la Universidad Northeastern.

El alcalde incluyó en su presupuesto para el año fiscal 22, que fue aprobado por el Concejo Municipal el martes 22 de junio, una partida de $500,000 para financiar la investigación adicional y la implementación de la Fase 1 del Equipo de Respuesta a Emergencias de All Lynn (ALERT). Esta inversión refleja el compromiso de la Ciudad de abordar el racismo sistémico y buscar una seguridad pública equitativa para todos.

Utilizando el informe de los estudiantes del Northeastern como punto de partida de la hoja de ruta, la Ciudad ahora está incorporando un consultor que trabajará en consulta con el LRJC y una serie de otras partes interesadas de la Ciudad y la comunidad, para seguir investigando, guiar, asesorar y desarrollar la planificación, detalles de diseño e implementación de un modelo de ALERT de Fase 1 factible que será exitoso para nuestra Ciudad.

La Lynn Racial Justice Coalition está formada por los siguientes grupos y miembros:

  • Diverse People United- Neil Whittredge y Anthony Coleman

  • Essex County Community Organization- Reverend Bernadette Hickman-Maynard (LRJC Co-Chair), Darrell Murkison, y Brenda Womack

  • Local 201 Civil Rights Committee - Eugene Anderson

  • Lynn United for Change - Isaac Simon Hodes, Goldean Graham, y Helina Fontes

  • New Lynn Coalition - Jeff Crosby, Maria Carrasco, y Jonathon Feinberg

  • North Shore Juneteenth Association - Nicole McClain

  • Prevent The Cycle - Adriana Paz (LRJC Co-Chair)
