Mayor Domenic J. Sarno and Ward 1 City Councilor Maria Perez joined with the New North Citizens Council (NNCC) for the kickoff of the Increasing Diversity and Equity in the Addiction Workforce (IDEA Workforce Initiative). The initiative, which is funded through the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Bureau of Substance Addiction Services, is based on the belief that all should have equal access to culturally responsive services that are reflective of their race, orientation, disabilities and cultural and linguistic background.

Mayor Sarno states, “I want to commend and thank our New North Citizens Council, especially Executive Director Maria Ligus, COO Jose Claudio and City Councilor Maria Perez for the tremendous work they do for our community, especially when addressing housing, mental health and diversity and equity in the workforce.  My administration is proud to support this great initiative.”
