Week of Advocacy: A Virtual Keynote Session

Join MAR for the Keynote Presentation kicking off our week of Advocacy.

Keynote Speaker

Representative Aaron Michlewitz, Democrat – 3rd Suffolk

Aaron Michlewitz was born and raised in the North End of Boston. He has lived and worked in the neighborhoods he represents his whole life and currently resides in the North End with his wife, Maria.

A graduate of Northeastern University, Aaron has dedicated himself to helping others. He has become a popular mentor to many of his neighborhood’s youth for whom he has been a fixture throughout organized sports programs. He coached youth baseball for nearly a decade with his lifelong friends who he used to play alongside with when he was a participant in these programs.

First elected to the Massachusetts House of Representatives in 2009, Aaron Michlewitz represents the Third Suffolk District, which comprises the Boston neighborhoods of the North End, Waterfront, Chinatown, South End, Downtown, Leather District, Bay Village, and portions of the West End, Beacon Hill, and the Back Bay.

Throughout his tenure, Michlewitz has made the 3rd Suffolk District his priority, focusing on legislation in his district, including several key pieces of legislation such as bilingual ballots for the residents of Chinatown, enacting stricter fines for trash violators in the City, and adding a South End seat to the MassPort Community Action Committee.
