Boston has a reputation: cold, unfriendly, racist and hard–not all undeserved. But in case everything you know about Boston you learned from a Matt Damon movie, rest assured that there is something else here.
As home to over 70 Colleges and Universities, including some of the world’s best, Boston is a place that has a close relationship with reason–eve if it doesn’t alway win. We love freedom and liberty–we created it here, no matter what Philly says. We love a good protest and most importantly–we don’t like to take shit from anyone, especially someone that hasn’t read a book lately, Cheeto boy. This doesn’t look like a Whitey Bulger movie.

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh is doing the most to be an ideal sanctuary city. He makes a safe space for all kinds of people attacked, targeted and affected by the Trump administration’s solution to Make America a Police State Again. He not just paying lip service either. He’s going to tuck you in, dude. So when Marty says he’s got you, he does.
This city may still bear challenges–we’re a rough bunch, just ask Roger Goodell. Still no matter what Ben Affleck tells you, you should know that this is my Boston.
