We lead efforts to help Boston plan for and deal with catastrophes and slow-moving disasters, like persistent racial and economic inequality.
Our Racial justice initiatives aim to make sure all of us have access and support to thrive from childhood to retirement. We're focused on social and economic resilience in a City affected by historic and current divisions of race and class and solutions for the future.
