News Logo

The Select Board will discuss the Indigenous Peoples Day resolution at its regular meeting on Monday, April 5 at 6:30 p.m.

Residents are invited to share comments with the Board in advance of this discussion.

To comment in advance of the meeting, please email  to reach all five Board members. 

To comment during the meeting, residents may also email and indicate they would like to speak during the public comment portion of Monday night's meeting. You will receive a return email with a call-in number and your speaker order. 

On March 2, 2021, Wellesley voters approved a non-binding referendum asking the Select Board to proclaim the second Monday in October as Indigenous Peoples Day and cease to recognize Columbus Day in Wellesley, in order to recognize the position of Indigenous Peoples as native to our land and the suffering they faced during and after the European conquest.
