Ines Palmarin named one of most influential people for Latinos

Today, Inés Palmarin, our Program Officer for Resilient Communities/Resilient Families, was named by El Planeta as one of the 100 most influential people for Latinos in Massachusetts! We couldn't agree more.

An MIT-trained city planner, Inés has developed close connections with neighborhood organizations and community leaders across the state, including in her hometown of Mattapan and all along the Fairmount Indigo Corridor.  She is superb at bringing people together to identify and achieve common goals, and we are proud of her accomplishments. Keep an eye on this rising star as she works on new arts and health initiatives in Boston's neighborhoods this year and beyond.
