Our board Our board consists of diverse identities within and outside of MA who are committed to supporting intersectional disability rights through art in greater Boston and beyond. As aa Board Member, you are responsible for exercising sound fiscal and legal oversight of the organization in stewarding our mission. The board meets virtually monthly.
