Post-Election Statement from Mayor Liz Lempert and Princeton Council

In the aftermath of one of the most divisive and fractious elections in our country’s history, it is important for us to come together as a town and recommit ourselves to the values of inclusion, diversity and opportunity.  Much progress can happen at the local level, and we all have a role to play in continuing to shape our community as a place of welcome, and supporting our neighbors in need.

Last week, we came together with local institutions and non-profits to commit to maintaining and building a unified Princeton in a divided nation. As Mayor and Council, we recognize that our community is stronger because of our diversity, not in spite of it, and we commit to supporting all our residents regardless of their race, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, immigration status, disability, economic standing or political views.

We also want to assure our residents from the diverse groups represented in our town that we will continue our commitment to social justice and will stand against intolerance.

If you have concerns, questions, or are looking for resources to help you, your family, or someone you know or want to help with these efforts to build a more inclusive community, you can contact the Princeton Human Services Department at 609-688-2055. The office is located at 1 Monument Drive Princeton, NJ.
