Our Commonwealth does best when everyone has the ability to reach their full potential and
contribute to our society and economy. For our state to prosper, we all need jobs with decent pay, good
public schools, safe and affordable housing, healthy places to live, and reliable transportation among
other essentials. Yet these essentials are often not available to many people, particularly those who live
in low-income communities and communities of color. This reduces their opportunities to thrive.
Massachusetts, one of the wealthiest states in the nation, has the ability to build an economy in which
everyone can participate fully.
