Resilience and Racial Equity | Boston.gov | Dr. Atyia Martin

The Mayor’s Office of Resilience and Racial Equity leads efforts to help Boston plan for and deal with catastrophes and slow-moving disasters — like persistent racial and economic inequality — that have become part of 21st century life.

Our department works to to develop and implement Boston’s Resilience Strategy. The strategy is a transformative, healing journey to ensure all of us have access and support to thrive from childhood to retirement in our daily lives and during major emergencies.

We maintain a unique focus on social and economic resilience in a City affected by historic and persistent divisions of race and class. Our department also keeps an eye toward potential shocks the City may be exposed to.

We are led by Boston’s Chief Resilience Officer, Dr. Atyia Martin.
