"MassBudget remains as committed as ever to using our decades of expertise on economic and fiscal issues to heal and repair from injustices, past and present. We believe that is essential to an equitable future to co-create antiracist policy solutions alongside communities that have been historically excluded from public investments and opportunity.
I do this work in honor of my mother, Antonia Pedraza Massó, who was a paraprofessional in the New Bedford Public Schools–the same schools that I also attended. She loved working with kids, but found herself having to work overtime, day in and day out, barely being able to make ends meet. I do this work for her and us – to ensure that we’re all resourced and able to thrive and have joy."

Remarks from Marie-Frances Rivera, MassBudget President
