In a COVID winter, it’s harder than ever to find a public bathroom in Boston. What’s the city doing about it?
“The results of this study are deeply troubling and further reinforce the immediate need to address the longstanding injustices Black people face in every aspect of their lives.”
Speakers presented a new report created by researches at Massachusetts Institute for Technology and City Life, which revealed that 70% of evictions in Boston are in communities where the majority of the population are people of color—Roxbury, Dorchester, Mattapan.
“In a community like Chelsea, with many families in one [housing] unit … With a disease as contagious as this one, isolation is the key.”
“It was sort of testing the water with it, seeing what [evictions] they can get away with. This legislation stopped folks in their tracks before it caught on.”
