Updates and appreciations

New faces this fall
We're excited to be working with some new folks this year: Nina, a Youth Organizer elected by REEP in August and Giselle, a Life Together Fellow working on membership and organizing. We also have two law student interns: Leslie, who will be working with returning intern Evan on environmental justice policy and legislation, regulatory reform, and affordable housing issues. We look forward to sharing their work with you.
 
A decade of delectable excellence
Congratulations to Haley House Bakery Café on their 10-year anniversary in Dudley Square! We remember when the café was just an idea, and your organizers talked to people and organizations in the area to see if there was a need for a space to gather and break bread. (We said yes!) 
 
Now, after a decade of providing job and skills training to community members, Haley House is expanding and opening a new worker co-op, Dudley Dough, on October 5. Much love to our friends at Haley House for their dedication to delicious food and community, commitment to social and economic justice, and many years of partnership and solidarity.
