As a lifelong Boston resident, Andrea knows our city, and our nation, have always been strengthened by our immigrant communities. As the Councilor for one of Boston’s most diverse districts, she’s stood up for the rights of our immigrant communities and will continue to do so as Mayor. Andrea believes the City must be led inclusively, in a manner that brings all residents to the table and that not only embraces and celebrates the diversity of Boston but also builds on it. Every resident in our City, regardless of immigration status, should feel like Boston belongs to them.
As Mayor, Andrea will:
Protect the civil rights of immigrants. We saw firsthand how the Trump Administration’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was led by people who targeted our immigrant communities and tear families apart. Under a Mayor Campbell, Boston will strengthen the Trust Act and not assist or share data with ICE.
Empower our immigrant communities to be civically engaged and involved. Andrea believes city government should be a place of belonging, where everyone feels seen and welcomed. As Mayor, she will work to improve language access in City Hall, in our schools, and in our institutions, and make it easier for immigrants to participate and make their voices heard.
