World of Wellesley, together with community members, put forth Citizen’s Petition 42 to Support the Establishment of Indigenous Peoples Day in Wellesley.
Wellesley’s Advisory Committee voted 8-2 in favor of this petition and Town Meeting voted 63% in favor but first added an amendment requiring a town-wide vote.
Indigenous Peoples Day will be on the ballot in March 2021. Stay tuned for information about how you can help with this town-wide campaign!
We as people who reside, work, and engage in Wellesley acknowledge this town is located on the traditional territory of the Massachusett Tribe. Learn more about Native Land.
