Brookline PAX

Now proudly starting our 7th decade, the PAX Board has, collectively, over 800 years of progressive activism.
We’re pleased to share our Board’s Warrant Article recommendations, as always, by a super-majority (minimum threshold of 60%) of those voting. We generally limit our recommendations to Articles expressive of (albeit broad) PAX values (e.g., supporting public education, public service and unions, climate change activism, social/racial justice, and peace).
With just two Articles on the Warrant for the January 10 Special Town Meeting, one an important climate article and the other a straightforward “good government” initiative, it was an easy call to endorse both. (See the PAX website for more about us.)
