About Us

Amherst for All is a group of your friends, neighbors, and families who support year-round democracy in Amherst.  Some of us serve on Town Meeting.  A few of us participated in the Charter Commission – the citizens’ group that developed this proposal. Some of us supported the recent school building project, and some of us voted against it.  Some of us are local business people, some are academics, some work for nonprofits, and others are full-time parents.  But we all share one thing:  We love Amherst, and believe year-round democracy is the best way to make sure our town continues to be one of the very best small towns in the United States.
