Thank you to everyone who came to our Annual Meeting: Roots of Change! We celebrated big victories this year, including a major win against ethanol trains, new community gardens and a cap on MBTA fare increases. Members voted to approve the next year of our strategic plan and continue our work for environmental justice.
This year’s meeting focused on creating solutions: We tackled EJ issues like transportation, housing and land, jobs and opportunity, and air quality. Using visuals to show what changes we wanted to see, we proposed solutions that would work for our communities.
We are also pleased to announce that four new members were elected to our Board of Directors! Congratulations to Mary Ann Babinski, Heather Catherwood, Mina Makarious and Lauren Richter. Thank you to our members, volunteers and supporters for making this event a success!
