Cambridge Main Street – Downtown Cambridge

The Heart and Soul of our Community

Downtown Cambridge is the heart and soul of our community – a place where people come together. We hear, see and feel the pain black people are suffering. Cambridge Main Street is committed to taking action against systematic racism and discrimination in all their forms.

Cambridge Main Street joins the nation in mourning the unjust deaths of black people. We condemn racism and injustice. We are committed to supporting people of color and to engage in important conversations about race, equality, and justice – so that, together, our community can begin to heal. We want everyone to feel safe and welcome when they choose to live, work, and visit downtown Cambridge.

Together, we express our grief and hopes, realize our dreams, and envision the future of our town. It is fundamentally important that everyone feel welcome, safe, and respected. We recognize the intrinsic worth of every human being. The dignity of every person must be honored in our community. Together, we must ground our community in empathy, compassion, and love.

Our downtown is a gathering place – where we come together to eat, drink, worship, mourn, explore, and celebrate. The Cambridge community is fortunate to have residents, businesses owners, staff, patrons, and leaders of many ethnicities and from many different backgrounds. Our strength is in our diversity.

We are eager to move forward together. Our work to create safe spaces and to ensure shared prosperity for all members of our community is far from finished, but we are committed to being a force for good.
