We catch up with Boston City Councilor Michelle Wu, who has been vocal in the city's response to the coronavirus pandemic as well as its current reckoning with racism and police brutality. In a recent op-ed, she criticized Boston Mayor Marty Walsh's move to create the Boston Racial Equity Fund, calling it "a squandering of municipal power that will compete with a community-led effort created by Black and brown business leaders."
