What We Do

MPDC encourages our residents and community members to participate in the political process and to actively engage appointed and elected officials.

Every person’s voice should be heard – and having our community’s interests strongly represented will help secure more resources for our neighborhood.

How We Do It:

We are a member of the RoxVote Coalition – a group of non-partisan Roxbury-based organizations and residents whose goal is to increase civic engagement within our community. The coalition spreads the word about upcoming elections, shares information about how to register to vote, and hosts events where residents can get to know candidates and learn about the issues. These activities lead to increased voter participation and broader civic engagement – while also developing residents into future community leaders who are well-informed and passionate about local concerns.
