In recent weeks, a wave of violence has rippled throughout Western Mass, touching each of our communities in tragic ways. Every incidence of violence, theft, and drug-dealing places a greater strain on our communities, keeps us from the progress we need to move forward as a region, and increases the urgency to work together.
To make lasting progress, we need to embrace new approaches and make sure our police officers, business owners, and community leaders, along with everyday citizens, have the support they need to keep our neighborhoods safe.
