Gathering community

In partnership with Kendall/MIT Open Space, the Cambridge Community Foundation hosted a community night on July 20, featuring a digital photography exhibition by Kristen Joy Emack and Cindy Weisbart that highlighted Cambridge youth perspectives in our recent annual report. At the event, CCF President Geeta Pradhan spoke to the power of our young people’s voices in shaping Cambridge’s future.

We’re grateful for MIT’s collaboration and to everyone who joined us for a beautiful evening in community!
