Civil Rights Protection Plan

Chapter 11:Community Outreach

As part of its overall civil rights strategy, the BHA will continue to organize community meetings with residents to establish a dialogue regarding civil rights and public safety issues. The Authority will work with community, youth, and religious leaders toward establishing an overall safe environment for all residents. The U.S. Department of HUD and the City ofBoston Fair Housing Commission will be kept apprised of these outreach efforts, and the BHA will request their participation and input whenever warranted. The BHA will encourage participation from all residents in this program.  The Authority will continue to organize meetings with BHA Tenant Task Force members. The Boston Police Community Disorders Unit’s  presence at these meetings will be determined  based on need and subject matter.
