FRAMINGHAM – On March 2, Mayor Spicer held a Community Conversation in celebration of Women’s History Month in March. From that Community Conversation, the idea arose of creating a group to explore creating a commission tasked with voicing and addressing the needs of Framingham’s
women and families.

According to the U.S. Census, women make up more than half of our community. Still, currently, there are no Framingham-specific municipal bodies expressly tasked with advocating for women and families, addressing issues such as paid leave, fair and equitable wages, child care, and after-school programs, for example.

If you are interested in serving on this task force, to be comprised of 7-9 participants representing the demographic diversity of our community, please send an email to express your interest to Mayor Spicer at and Dr. Maritsa Barros at by Wednesday, March 31.
