Woke communities | Elizabethtown is one of many municipalities (including school districts) in the County, the state and the nation that “gets it.” In the minutes of the June 18 Council meeting, the borough council president read a public statement that included this promise:

“Going forward, we know that we will need to open our eyes, ears, and hearts, and be willing to engage in difficult conversations, if we truly want to see positive change occur. We want Elizabethtown to be a community that is welcoming to all and we will commit ourselves and our resources to continuous improvement. We will listen and seek to make those positive improvements. We will work toward solutions focused on creating a better Elizabethtown, for everyone.”
