Mission Statement

The Methuen Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Advisory Panel is a group of citizens, leaders, and civil servants united to advise the Mayor's Office about important social matters. This panel commits to compassionately and objectively supporting the needs of Methuen residents by addressing challenges caused by systemic injustice, discrimination, harassment, and fear. Through collaborative community engagement activities, active listening, and accessible education we seek to create cooperative resolutions and necessary changes.

"It is in the expansively inclusive honoring of our differences in background, race, sexuality, gender identities, age, health, disability, culture, class, religions, neurotype, education, languages, philosophies, and more, that we can come together in recognized strength, celebration, and the courage to dream of a better tomorrow, today."
