WATCHUNG, NJ - Watchung Mayor Keith Balla and the Borough Council will discuss formulating a 
plan to address diversity, equality, inclusion, and justice at the next meeting of the Borough Council.

“I’ve given a great deal of thought to measures we can take in our borough that could make a real difference in how our residents view Watchung’s efforts to tackle tough issues such as racism, sexism, and discrimination.  I will outline those measures at Thursday’s council meeting and look forward to beginning the conversation to bring people from all walks of life together to work toward a more just environment,” the Mayor said.  

He added, “We see the pain and suffering that has shuttered many communities across the country.  We must come together as a community to listen and commit to work together to implement reforms that will ensure equality, justice, and education through our constructive dialogue.  Our Watchung family working hand-in-hand to craft a comprehensive plan to address diversity, equality, inclusion, and justice will certainly create a unique bond among our citizens working or the betterment of all residents.”
