UMA/MATV Reopening Policy

Based on plans offered by the Governor’s Office of the State of Massachusetts, UMA/MATV will reopen in four phases. This strategy is being carefully considered in order to provide the best service for the City of Malden while protecting the health of its residents, UMA/MATV members and staff. As with so many other factors during this unprecedented time, the timeline may change as new information arises.

Statement From Executive Director

During these troubling times, our staff has been thinking and talking about racism, equity through email, phone calls and a virtual Zoom staff meeting. We are a diverse staff that represents different races, cultures, ages and life experiences. Sharing our personal stories, thoughts, and reflections has helped underscore the impact of dialog and “uncomfortable conversations.” As Executive Director of MATV/UMA, I am committed to the ongoing education of our staff on issues of racial and cultural sensitivity, as well as extending that education outward to the community through use of our media channels and programming.
