The Harborkeepers Receives Partners in Transportation Award on 9/21/18

Harborkeepers' Coastal Resiliency Volunteer & East Boston Community Leader Elsa Flores receives the National Hispanic Heritage Month Community Recognition Award on behalf of Harborkeepers from the Office of Stephanie Pollack, Secretary and CEO of the Massachusetts Department of Transporation. This award recognizes organizational efforts to engage with the Latino community in the Spanish language on environmental issues in a way that relates to them so that they can feel empowered to take action and care for their neighborhood in a manner that is meaningful to them and their families. Connecting with residents and engaging with them in the Spanish language is key for the Latino community to feel like our organization cares about their concerns and needs. We support their aspirations while they support our organization and work, which inludes building sustainable coastal community resiliency. The Harborkeepers is honored to receive this award.
