Task force wants Shrewsbury’s feedback on diversity, equity and inclusion


SHREWSBURY — How do you feel about diversity, equity and inclusion in Shrewsbury?

That’s the subject of a survey being conducted by the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force. 

The survey, which can be found by clicking here, is open to Shrewsbury residents over the age of 18. 

The survey is anonymous and focuses on housing, education, health, safety and employment. 

The DEI Task Force was established by the Shrewsbury Board of Selectmen in August 2020, after the selectmen released a statement denouncing the actions of Minneapolis police officers involved in the death of George Floyd. 

The selectmen received a letter signed by over 100 residents asking that an anti-racism committee be formed.

The task force was formed and made up of a diverse group of 26 residents, including representatives from the Board of Selectmen, School Committee, Council on Aging, Board of Health and Commission on Disabilities. 

The task force created subcommittees on education, health care, employment, housing and public safety. 

The results of this new survey will help shape the task force’s recommendations to improve an inclusive culture in town.

Physical copies may be available at locations like Town Hall, Shrewsbury Public Library or the Senior Center in the future.
