Welcome to the #RollinsReport!
We want to thank you for pledging your support to Rachael's campaign for Suffolk County District Attorney. We've had a busy couple of weeks and wanted to keep all of you in the loop with the weekly #RollinsReport.
Our most recent Day of Action in Roxbury, JP, Dorchester, and Chelsea was a huge success! Supporters from all over Suffolk County came out to help collect signatures to get Rachael on the ballot. Every signature we collect and every person we talk to gets Rachael one step closer to victory in September.
On April 9th, we participated in our first forum hosted by the JP Progressives and Boston NAACP. “We have prosecutors who don’t look like the people they’re prosecuting. We have police officers who don’t look like the people they’re policing. And we need to do better.” said Rachael. Rachael’s dedication to revamp the criminal justice system of Suffolk County was highlighted during the forum. You can read more about the forum in the Baystate Banner and watch it here.

Later in the week, Rachael hosted a gathering of woman attorneys in the Boston area. She then headed over to the Boston News Network as a guest speaker on "Talk of the Neighborhoods." Make sure to watch her interview here.
Rachael spent the weekend meeting and talking with the people of Suffolk County at a number of community events.
She served as a panelist at the Boston College Black Law Students Association (BLSA) conference along with Boston Police Commissioner William B. Evans. Her panel titled "Community Policing: Law Enforcement, Urban Neighborhoods, and The Ties That Bind Us All" focused on how to improve the relationship between civilians and law enforcement in Boston.
She stopped by the 6th Annual Got Peace Basketball Tournament at the Reggie Lewis Center at Roxbury Community College. Rachael was proud to honor these fine, young athletes and connect with the event coordinator and community icon Big Time, Governor Charlie Baker and MBTA Transit Police Chief Ken Green. Then, she headed over to the Roxbury Neighborhood Assembly hosted by Boston Ujima Project, Right to the City, Reclaim Roxbury and ACE (Alternatives for Community and Environment)!
On Sunday, Rachael started off her morning at Morning Star Baptist Churchin Mattapan with Bishop John M. Borders, III and Boston NAACP President Tanisha Sullivan.
It's been a jammed-packed couple of weeks, and Rachael is so grateful for your help. From collecting signatures, to contributing, we would not be here without your support. Stay on the lookout for more opportunities to assist Rachael on the campaign trail. This is the first #RollinsReport and we are so happy to have you on our team!
P.S. Keep an eye out for our new website debut later on this week! We will be posting more events and updates.
