"Ray F1ynn, with his family roots in Ireland and the labor movement, has fought every day for the rights of all working families. This historic port symbolizes what Ray has represented through- out his public life: reaching out and welcoming people from every background, working with people to build one city, with one set of rules for all." "Everybody counts in Ray Flynn's Boston. Whether you arrived here yesterday or many generations ago, upholding the dignity and respect of all was the guiding principle. He continues the good fight today for social justice and religious freedom." Francis J. Doyle, chair of the Raymond L. Flynn Foundation, said, "Raymond L. Flynn Marine Park and the port itself sym- bolize opportunities for a fresh start and a second chance for people who most need them, for the homeless, the unemployed, the sick and the suffering. No matter what you experienced at some other time or in some other place, Ray Flynn's Boston extended its hands to you. The Raymond L. Flynn Marine Park represents a city where workers toil in dignity and respect and get a wage that enables them to make life better for their chil- dren. Inthe process, Ray Flynn built a reputation m Boston and around the world as a champion of working families, of bringing people together across divides of race, opportunity and national- ity. That's what the Raymond L. Flynn Marine Park will symbol- ize now.and in time to come. "It's so fitting to have Mayor Walsh make this announce- ment. Mayor Walsh shares Ambassador Flynn's commit- ment to the dignity of working families and organized labor, to respect people of every back- ground, and to make Boston a welcoming home for all, whether they are new immigrants today or have been here for many generations."
