SCI Social Capital Luncheon | March 26

Please join DotWell, in partnership with Codman Square Health Center and Dorchester House Multi-Service Center in honoring Cynthia Loesch at the March 26 SCI Social Capitalist Luncheon. Cynthia started her career as a community organizer by founding the BOLD Teens, a youth-led social and environmental justice group, when she was just 13.

The BOLD Teens began as a group of young people in Dorchester, who, like Cynthia, had lost relatives to tobacco-related illnesses. Signature successes include convincing the Boston Globe to ban advertising of all tobacco products in November 1999 and leading the effort to ban the sale of tobacco products in Boston pharmacies in 2008. >> Read More
