SOMERVILLE, MASS., November 26, 2018 — Parenting Journey today announced that three new members will join its 13-member board of directors: Tito Jackson, former Boston City Councilor and CEO of Verdant Medical, Inc.; Jefly Louis, special education paraprofessional at the Arthur D. Healey School; and Monica Infante, home healthcare aide and community volunteer. Louis and Infante co-chair Parenting Journey’s Parent Advisory Council, which was established last year.
“We’re excited to welcome three new members to the board, including two parents who have been directly impacted by Parenting Journey. They all bring a distinct and vital point of view to help guide the organization,” said Imari Paris Jeffries, executive director of Parenting Journey. “As our inaugural Social and Family Justice Fellow, Tito worked with Jefly, Monica and the other members of our Parent Advisory Council to advocate for equitable social policies that every family deserves. We look forward to continuing to create change based on their experiences.”
