News Photo

Mayor Gary Christenson is reaching out to Malden residents in an effort to fill one of the “resident member” positions on the Racial Equity Commission (the “Commission”). The focus of the Commission will be to examine the consequences of racism on public health and propose recommendations for a Racial Equity Plan for the City of Malden. Members of the Commission will be working over the course of 18 months to develop surveys, conduct focus groups, conduct research and interviews with impacted community members, leaders, and organizations to document the impacts of racism and discrimination, study language access, healthcare, mental health and wellbeing; employment and economic mobility, and educational needs of the city at the municipal level, in the business community, nonprofit and faith-based communities, schools, and beyond.

The Commission will be comprised of eight individuals, including the DEI Coordinator, with varied backgrounds and who have knowledge of existing resources, an understanding of how municipal and regional systems function, and who have a solid understanding of systemic racism.  One member is appointed by the Mayor and two are appointed by the City Council. The School Committee will appoint two members from the student body of the Malden Public Schools, and these members will nominate two additional members. Resident members may serve for two years from date of appointment. 

To apply, please complete the online Boards and Commissions Application in full at  Please email for more information.

The deadline for accepting applications is Wednesday, February 2, 2022 at 5 PM.
