MACDC Annual Meeting

Thank you for joining us for the
2020 MACDC Annual Meeting

If you missed it, you can watch the recording, and check out the Program Book.
  Here are some highlights:
  • CDC Roll CallSince the beginning of the COVID-19 public health and economic crisis, MACDC members have stepped up and are responding to the crisis in various ways. In this video, they tell us about one thing they have done to help their communities weather the pandemic. This is a must watch!
  • Community Development Awards:
  • Francisco Ramos from NewVue Communities received the Ricanne Hadrian Award for his outstanding organizing work.
  • Will Monson of Homeowners' Rehab, Inc, JaVonica Latson of Quincy Geneva New Vision CDC, and Sarah Jenness, Board Member of Fenway CDC were honored with Rising Star awards.
Congratulations to all awardees!
  • Spoken Word Performance: Isaiah Almonte, from the IBA Youth Program, gave a powerful performance of his poem, "Killing my Color."
