"Upon completing a two-year fellowship at MIT,
Malia Lazu returned to Boston to build nonprofit models for the 21st century.
With over two decades of experience establishing grass roots involvement in
political advocacy & civic engagement, Malia felt the nonprofit industry is
no longer creating safe spaces for humans to create change together
& is in need of disruption.
This led to the creation of Future Boston Alliance
& currently Epicenter Community, organizations working to
change the world by being intentional when building diverse communities
& celebrating the beautiful ways we are different."

10 things progressives can do to build a campaign for candidates who deserve to win."
