Dr. Tanyss Munro has spent her life, with her husband, best-selling

author Gem Munro, to creating a world worthy of children and youth

around the world.

As director of Canadian education systems with troubled native

communities in the remote north, her work with the youth catalyzed

remarkable change.

From there she became a senior advisor to Reginal Tribal

governments, to Federal Ministers and a director of Good

Governance to governments around the world through the

Commonwealth of Learning.

The Munros founded Amarok Society in 2006. They developed an

approach many said would never work to help some of the poorest

mothers in the world transform their own communities to create a

world worthy of

For their work, they were recipients of the Queen Elizabeth II

Diamond Jubilee Medal.

Stephen McBride is running to be a new and bold advocate for Dorchester, Roxbury, South Boston, and the South End. At only 31, he has chosen to challenge a ten-year incumbent because the status quo is no longer working for his community. District 3 deserves accessible and accountable representation. Looking ahead is not enough - we must also reckon with the policies and institutions that have led us to where we are. There is an acceptance of the status quo from our current city councilor that has left too many of our neighbors and friends behind. Stephen is running on a platform that champions an equitable COVID-19 recovery; every child's access to a fully funded public school; and safe, stable, and affordable housing, while centering racial and climate justice at every turn. Stephen is running for office because he has a fundamentally different view of the changes our community needs than the person currently in this role. Stephen believes that the City Council should be here to push for structural change. And that's why he wants to be District 3's next city councilor.

HOW BOSTON CAN RESPOND TO CLIMATE CHANGE

Climate change is here! Boston must be fully prepared for climate emergencies such as flooding and extreme heat. Boston’s city government has an operating and capital budget in the billions and, as overseer of parks, streets, and hundreds of city and school buildings, is well-positioned to invest in energy efficiency, fossil fuel reduction, green new jobs, and green educational awareness; Colimon wants to build a greener, walkable, bikeable Boston for more vulnerable citizens who need a climate-safe city, and our youngest citizens who need to be able to look forward to a bright future.

James “Reggie” Colimon is an experienced International Partnerships Manager with a demonstrated history of working in the government administration industry. He served as Mayor Walsh’s Liaison to the City Council | 2014 – 2017.

In August 2016, Dr. Mitra and his wife Sheema established a foundation named JOYGURU HUMANITARIAN SERVICES. This is a nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to serving the disadvantaged and underprivileged members of our community.

JOYGURU HUMANITARIAN SERVICES aims to improve the lives of individuals and families affected by poverty, homelessness, and other social conditions as well as blindness and visual impairment. It promotes the empowerment of women and girls around the world. And it inspires underprivileged children to realize their inner potential and to make a difference in the world.

Ever since childhood, Dr. Satya Mitra has wondered about the significance of his birth. He was born many years after his older brother and sister, and his mother lived only until he was three and a half years old. Difficulties and challenges were all around him, but several people helped him in various ways and he never forgot that.

Later, after coming to the USA, Satya Mitra became a disciple of his family priest Sri Sri Mohanananda Maharaj, also known as “GURU”. On his Guru’s instruction, Satya traded a career in science to become a tax and financial advisor. Guru also inspired him to use his professional success in his profession to help poor and underprivileged people, something that Satya has always been passionate about doing.

Producing theatre in the 21st century: As performing arts emerges from over a year of quarantine, there are huge challenges ahead, including the rise of Netflix, an audience eager for experiences on-demand, shifting demographics, and new paradigms in leadership. Matt Chapuran, Executive Director of the Lyric Stage Company, will share how Boston's oldest resident company stays young.
 
Matt Chapuran was the Managing Director of the Lyric Stage before becoming its Executive Director on October 1, 2019. Previously, he was the managing director of the Nora Theatre Company and the Greater Boston Stage Company, and raised institutional funds for the Huntington Theatre Company. His career includes seven years in affordable housing, with Boston Capital and The Community Builders. His short plays have been produced as a part of the Boston Theatre Marathon and Mill6 Theatre's The T Plays, and he has co-written two horror musicals for ImprovBoston.
