The pride flag will not fly at Town Hall again unless we take action now!

Last year HolliPride, a subcommittee of Diverse Holliston, worked with the Town to hang the Pride flag  at Town Hall for the entire month of June, showing our community members and everyone who drives down Rte. 16 that we are an inclusive town  dedicated to equity, diversity, and access for all people.

On 1/22/24, with minimal community engagement, the Select Board adopted its first ever Flag Flying Policy, which limits the flags that can be flown at Town Hall and most other town-owned properties to those of the United States, the state of Massachusetts, the Town of Holliston, and the POW/MIA flag. This would prevent us from ever flying the Pride flag at town hall again unless we take action now.

The policy was adopted to prevent Holliston from facing litigation, as the City of Boston did two years ago. We are proposing policy changes that would allow for legal protection while also maintaining the ability for the Holliston town government to show strong support for all of its community members — aligning with the Town’s Strategic Plan, which has a specific focus on improving diversity, equity, and inclusion.

What Can You Do?

A strong coalition of community members will demonstrate to the Select Board that we are indeed a town of people who care about showing support for Pride month.


Thank you for your support of a more equitable Holliston!


In solidarity,

HolliPride and the DH Strategic Planning Board
