Yesterday the Black & Latino Caucus focused on economic development and closing the wealth gap in MA during our Q2 meeting with Gov. Charlie Baker.

Thank you for the fruitful discussion and for the expertise shared by MassHousing, the Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance, and the Human Resources Division.

We will continue to work on the topics discussed including micro business development, home ownership, public workforce diversity, and diversity in construction.

Yesterday we hosted a group of concerned local Venezuelans as they discussed the struggle for free and fair elections in the midst of an ongoing humanitarian crisis. 
The insight they shared alongside academic leaders was enlightening, and we thank them for their advocacy.

On a Tuesday in November of each year we cast a ballot with hope that the box we checked with our No. 2 pencil will make our country a better place for not only us, but our children. And between each of those Tuesdays only a small percentage of people will continue fighting to better our nation’s policies for our future. On Saturday I got to witness such a group of that percentage, the Massachusetts Black and Latino Legislative Caucus, host a “Speak Out for Racial Justice” event at the State House. We can only hope that the people behind the checked boxes will hear the voices behind the pencils. #MBLLCJustice #MBLLC #socialjustice #america #equality #MAStateHouse #boston #masenate

Yesterday the Black & Latino Caucus focused on economic development and closing the wealth gap in MA during our Q2 meeting with Gov. Charlie Baker.

Thank you for the fruitful discussion and for the expertise shared by MassHousing, the Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance, and the Human Resources Division.

We will continue to work on the topics discussed including micro business development, home ownership, public workforce diversity, and diversity in construction.

Yesterday we hosted a group of concerned local Venezuelans as they discussed the struggle for free and fair elections in the midst of an ongoing humanitarian crisis. 
The insight they shared alongside academic leaders was enlightening, and we thank them for their advocacy.

Moments ago Rep. Chynah Tyler testified in support of H2799. The resolve is one of the first steps in our plan to erect a commemorative plaque in honor of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s 1965 address to the MA Legislature.

Yesterday we met with @harvardiop Vice President Maya Jenkins to lay the foundation for a fellowship between our two organizations.

The program would provide "high impact service" opportunities to students of color, building a diverse pipeline of future State House staffers and Legislators.
