Margaret Van Scoy
Margaret Van Scoy was born and raised in San Luis Obispo, California. She attended Tufts University and graduated with a Bachelors in International Relations and a minor in economics. While at Tufts, Van Scoy interned for then City Councilor Michelle Wu. During that time, she worked on various initiatives to address equity issues in the City including Boston’s Green New Deal — a plan to mitigate the threat of climate change in Boston, and the #unfairhikes direct action — a city-wide movement made up of 300 volunteers and 50 elected officials rallying for affordable public transit and calling for action regarding safety concerns on the MBTA. She then went on to serve with the AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) co-leading a team of ten young adults providing disaster relief services across the southern region of the United States.
Outside of work, Van Scoy enjoys going to yoga classes, walking the Esplanade with friends, reading at Boston Public Library branches, and trying pizza places around the City
