Our mission is to promote positive relations throughout Easthampton's diverse population. We will work to build a sense of inclusion, community, and pride, where community members feel welcome, accepted, and valued.
We envision creating an Easthampton community in which all members have a voice, are connected, and feel empowered. By 2025, we will:
- Provide opportunities for open dialogue
- Connect citizens to their government
- Support Easthampton on its path to becoming a community of Good Neighbors
