“When it comes to the root of justice and equity, I will always stand for what’s right and be willing to lose for what’s right.”
Stand in your values.
Donald Osgood Sr. is Senior Program Manager for Boston’s Neighborhood Trauma Team Network. In this role, he guides the city’s response to incidents of violence.
Donald combines his corporate management experience with his love for Boston’s communities. In acts both small and big, he speaks truth even when it doesn’t serve people in power and shows love when it is a radical act.
Donald teaches us that presence is power. Showing up – or walking away – is a daily practice of one’s beliefs.
The project: Agncy is working with the Boston Public Health Commission’s Division of Violence Prevention to use a trauma-informed approach in co-creating its racial equity plan.
