We Are The Stewards of Our Harbor. We Are the Harborkeepers.

Harborkeepers in the News

We may be a new non-profit organization, but we are not new to environmental activism and advocacy in East Boston.  Harborkeepers is harnessing the existing community relationships and strong partnerships that it has built with the community, groups/organizations and City departments as well as State agencies over the years.  Yet at the same time, it is continuously nurturing new ones through the ongoing community-building activities, events, collaborations, outreach and the everyday presence in the neighborhoods of East Boston.  We understand that in order to advance state, regional and local municipal climate resiliency plans and goals, we need to consider the community as local experts and give them a leadership role.

Harborkeepers is led by the region's most experienced local climate resiliency and waterfront engagement experts, with a proven professional track record of creating and implementing innovative community-based engagement tools, tactics and models which have produced measurable and effective results.  Harborkeepers is very organically and deeply embedded in community issues because its experienced leadership, volunteers and supporters live in the area and engage on a daily basis with people from all walks of life, backgrounds, cultures and languages in a positive and inspiring way on a diverse set of issues.  



We have made some local news and received some recognition of the Harborkeepers' work but we are just getting stared.  We have a lot more work to do and we won't stop until our community is prepared and resilient!
