Dear Greatest MINDS Youth Members, Parents, Community Leaders, Political Candidates, Residents, and Non-Profit Leaders:
I have enclosed our Greatest MINDS CANDIDATE Night Video with Boston City Councilors At-Large from July 2021 - Please watch in its entirety. These videos and websites will provide you crucial and factual information about the candidates you would like to vote for in the Boston City Council At-Large and Boston Mayoral Races. Here is the video for that event: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uezwp6LxdUI&t=2s
We also have included our One-on-One with Boston Mayoral Candidates as well. (here). Please feel free to watch these videos with friends, family and colleagues so you can make an informed decision. We wanted to do a format to help Boston residents hear from the candidates individually and not be regulated to "soundbites" by the media or local newspapers. We gave all candidates an equal and fair opportunity to participate and get their voices out to the community.

Greatest MINDS is a networking organization of educators, activists, entrepreneurs, young professionals, artists, and community members. Our mission is to provide mentorship and guidance to citizens and first-generation college students seeking to become active and successful contributors to civil society by giving them access to college, career, and community networks. We achieve this by promoting intergenerational dialogue through developing programs, forums, initiatives, campaigns, and conferences that highlight the issues of race, socio-economic class, and gender identity in urban cities and on college campuses. Through our collaborative process, we work towards solving these social justice issues by developing a more inclusive economy.
