Governor Charlie Baker, Mayor Martin J. Walsh, and other elected officials pledged during a forum in Boston on Tuesday night to fight for affordable health care, gun violence prevention, criminal justice reform, and public education in the Commonwealth.

The governor and mayor were joined by Attorney General Maura Healey and Massachusetts House Speaker Robert DeLeo. The four made their pledges before more than 1,800 people who packed the historic Trinity Church in Copley Square for the event, hosted by the Greater Boston Interfaith Organization.
