Mayor Gary Christenson was pleased to learn that Malden’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Coordinator, Kashawna Harling, was nominated by State Senator Jason Lewis and State Representative Steven Ultrino for the Massachusetts Black & Latino Legislative Caucus’ “Black Excellence on the Hill Award.” In her work as Malden’s DEI Coordinator, Kashawna has strived to create a strong community where people feel included, supported and heard. She previously served as the Program Director for the Mayor’s Youth Employment Program, Senior Employment Program and Career Connections program assisting students, seniors and residents into employment across the city.

According to the mission statement on the Caucus’ website, “The Massachusetts Black & Latino Legislative Caucus shall define, highlight and analyze those issues and concerns affecting people of color in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The Caucus shall seek to develop a sense of political awareness among its constituents and to make the political and legislative process accountable and accessible for those who have been disenfranchised.”
