Welcome to our blog!


Community initiatives and leadership in our city: meet Tania Del Rio, Nigesca Maxime, Vivianne Kamba, Yamileth López and Hector Pina. 

We have so many opportunities for growth and community engagement that we, sometimes, may not even know where to start. That is why we are here, the Multicultural Society of Boston. We want to learn. We want to see what is out there, who is out there doing what. And because some of us have incredible stories about movements and migrations, we feel compelled to stop and look closely at where we live. 

And what we have found is amazing. We have a large community of entrepreneurs, thinkers, and community leaders who have come from all over, who have diverse backgrounds and life stories, and who strive to make our city a better place to live.  

I am grateful to have joined Katy, who has shared her vision for connection to the multicultural society we are lucky to have in Boston. Together, we have embarked on a journey that seeks to unite our diverse communities. 

It has been fascinating to be able to do something different, something new. And this involved us going through our contact lists and the internet and picking up the phone to introduce ourselves and explain our mission. We want to learn about our city, and we want to connect and provide a space to exchange ideas and experiences. We believe we need each other to move forward because we are not alone. We can always offer support if we can. 

And so, in this way, we went on, and with patience and perseverance, we did it. We created the re-launch virtual event, and we were fortunate to have outstanding speakers who shared their experiences and important information about their community organizations. Their contribution was educational and powerful.

We believe that the knowledge they shared with us will help and develop our efforts to support our communities. In this manner, we are sharing here insights from our valued community members. We want to forward this excellent knowledge to our other members who could not attend -and if you wish to, please send us any materials you think will be helpful to share as well. We want to share your organization’s web pages, biographies, and contact information. The more we know, the better. 

 So, here we start: 

YWCA Cambridge Executive Director Tania Del Rio shared essential insights dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.
