Description of Fellowship
At the Mayor’s Office for Immigrant Advancement (MOIA), Flo helped develop the curriculum and logistics for a program to promote emerging immigrant leaders’ civic engagement with the City of Boston’s government. MOIA will launch the pilot for this program this year. The program will include a multi-session course, with interactive speakers, projects and activities designed to advance equity and immigrant leadership in city government. Through this program, MOIA will provide opportunities for participants to 1) build skills and knowledge to strategically engage with and navigate local government; 2) connect with city officials and other immigrant
leaders; and 3) actively address issues facing their communities.
