Civic Engagement in East Boston

Why aren’t Latinx folks at East Boston city meetings?!? This is the big question we try to unpack in today’s show. We’re joined by Claudia Sierra (Co-Founder, East Boston Merchant Association) and Gabriela Cartagena (East Boston Coastal Resilience Crew Youth Supervisor, Youth Conversation Corp), plus two folks from the Office of Neighborhood Services (ONS), Alexandra Valdez (Latino Liaison At-Large to the Mayor) & Jose “Jesús” Garcia-Mota (East Boston Neighborhood Liaison to the Mayor), to talk about this issues and ways to engage the various demographics living in East Boston.
