It is with great excitement that the Massachusetts Democratic Party announces that Gloribell Mota has joined our staff as our new Director of Training and Education. The Party secured funding for this new senior staff position, which will allow the Massachusetts Democratic Party to expand its education initiatives and programming. Mota will partner with Democratic committees and organizations around the state to promote grassroots activism, and to grow the Party at its roots.
In her new role, Gloribell will design curricula and manage statewide training programs for constituencies such as: the Democratic State Committee, local town and ward committees, youth, communities of color, and Democratic activists. She will also conduct candidate training programs, and develop a curriculum for the Diversity Internship Program initiative.
Most recently, Mota served as the Organizing Director for Boston’s At-Large City Councilor, Felix Arroyo, where she worked in partnership with local residents, advocacy groups, and government officials. Previously, Mota ran a grassroots campaign for state representative in East Boston. She was the community organizer in East Boston for Governor Patrick’s election in 2006. Mota was also the education coordinator for United for a Fair Economy (UFE), and worked as the Executive Director of the Mary Ellen McCormack Task Force in South Boston advocating on behalf of residents of public housing. She has also served on the Board of Directors for Neighborhoods of Affordable Housing (NOAH), the East Boston Health Center, and Action for Boston Community Development, Inc (ABCD).
Mota holds an Associate’s Degree from Bunker Hill Community College and a Bachelor’s Degree from Emerson College. She has two children and currently resides in East Boston. We are excited to have this new, vital position and even more thrilled to have Gloribell as part of our team moving forward. We also look forward to increasing our presence on Blue Mass Group and taking as many opportunities as possible to keep the webroots updated with the happenings at the Party.
