Amend Article 3.14 of the Town's General By-laws pertaining to the Commission for Diversity, Inclusion and Community Relations and Citizen Complaints

Petitioner: Arthur Wellington Conquest III, TMM6

Special Town Meeting, November 2019

The purpose of this article is to have the Town of Brookline take responsibility for rectifying racial discrimination (and other discrimination) complaints by requiring a Town board to investigate such complaints and make written findings as to their merit and to recommend appropriate actions to resolve such complaints. The existing procedures do not go far enough in ameliorating the complaints and concerns of people who feel they have been disrespected and aggrieved.
