Committee Work

Recently served on the Boston Public Schools Reopening Committee, with a focus on advocating for students who have I.E.P,s or 504 plans, as a parent representative. Helped develop recommendations for how district ESSER (Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief) funds will be spent, with a focus on students with disabilities.

Contributed to the Boston City Council working session for "Language and Communications Access for City Services, for the Government Operations", on Thursday, July 22, 2021, as a panelist. In this role, I  suggested updates to the text in the City of Boston Code, Ordinances, Chapter VI, Section 6-10. To prepare for this work I created a Powerpoint presentation titled "Improving Accessibility for City Government in Boston, MA" that I created with the help of @sunshineboston (on twitter).This work supported a proposal by Julia Mejia, Boston City Councilor at Large, to increase language and communications access in Boston!
 
In addition, contributing to the Planning and Development Steering Committee for Boston City Councilor at Large, Julia Mejia.
