Video highlights Kennedy’s stops across MA to discuss post-COVID economic recovery  

Watertown, MA –– Today Kennedy for Massachusetts released a new digital ad titled “Resilient” that captures Joe’s travels across the state the past few weeks, where he has met with voters in every corner of the Commonwealth to discuss our post-COVID economic recovery. Kennedy’s stops have been part of his Jobs and Justice Tour, which has taken him to Springfield, Gloucester, Boston, New Bedford, and countless communities in between, to discuss his economic recovery proposals for the months and years ahead.


“Times are tough. But our people are resilient,” Kennedy said. “I’ve spent the last several weeks crisscrossing the state. Listening to the concerns of the people across our commonwealth. And to a person they are optimistic about our future. But they know that in order to deliver that future, we need change.”

Kennedy’s Jobs and Justice Tour is a statewide swing to discuss building a better, stronger post-COVID American economy with working families, business owners, Black and Brown communities, organized labor, and essential workers. Kennedy began his tour shortly after announcing his Jobs and Justice Initiative earlier this month. 

The Kennedy Jobs and Justice Initiative (JJI) proposes a large-scale public works and federal hiring program designed to both address the acute needs of COVID-19 response, and to remedy the profound injustices of our modern economy, which long predated this pandemic. With a focus on equality, intersectionality, and anti-racism, the proposal builds on Kennedy’s earlier “moral capitalism” platform and continues his efforts to reorient federal economic policies to center American workers.
