THE STORY OF PEMBROKE RISING

                                             HISTORY

Pembroke Rising has its genesis in the summer of 2021. It was then that it became apparent that some on the Select Board were importing national leftist ideologies into local town government and affairs. The myth is that town elections are nonpartisan. While there might not be an R or D behind a candidate’s name on the ballot, the reality remains that Pembroke has a center-right history which some seek to move more and more to the left. With the Select Board’s decision to create a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee in resistance to the counsel of the Town Meeting not to do so, it became apparent that a grassroots movement to protect our history and values became necessary. Pembroke Rising is that grassroots movement - identifiable, present, and unyielding in its reliance upon the wisdom imparted to us through over three centuries of trials and tribulations that shaped a flourishing town with a future.
