Mary Ellen

‘You can’t just dial the mayor, and ask for a park.’

Kate Telma, Sophie Kazis, and I produced this interview of Mary Ellen Welch as part of a ‘Media for Movement’ course by MIT Colabs and Zumix.

Listen to the interview:

The Friends of East Boston Greenway and The City of Boston organized a memorial for Mary Ellen recently. You can watch the Facebook live video of that service here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/eastiegreenway/permalink/10157836166682369/
