The Northeast Region is brings together families from communities as south as Everett, as far west as Dunstable, and north to the New Hampshire border. Our members have gone on to pursue LEND and Crocker Fellowships, write books, stage statewide campaigns, and be strong leaders within their local neighborhoods and communities.
We have a strong commitment to reaching culturally and linguistically diverse families. We are proud to include Latina family leaders on our team and to have strong partnerships with organizations like the Cambodian Mutual Assistance Association. We look forward to deepening our relationships with community-based organizations and groups in the coming years.
We are delighted to speak with and present to any organizations and family groups in northeastern Massachusetts. Please reach out to Sophia Johansson, Northeast Regional Coordinator, to learn more about our work and how you can get involved!
