Building our Community: A Great Start, A Greater Future


Thank you for a great night at

Southwest Boston CDC’s 15th Anniversary Gala on October 13th!

At the gala, City Council President Michelle Wu talked about how important SWBCDC’s work is since Boston faces real challenges in our housing costs, racial disparities, transit equity challenges and more. She mentioned that one tool for addressing many of the issues we all care about is the CPA…so we should all vote yes on question 5 in November!
Paul Sutton of the Boston Parks and Recreation Department and Yolanda Sealy of Dress With Confidence each received awards for their commitment to issues of open space and affordable housing.
Past Board Chair Diana Kelly and former Interim Executive Director Mat Thall each received a special mention for their contributions to the health of SWBCDC as an organization.
It was a special night of old friends and new, and lots of excitement about the good work to come.
