‘Changing Faces of Greater Boston’ Report Highlights Increasing Diversity in the Region

May 15, 2019

A new report provides improved perspective and data on the increasing racial and ethnic diversity of Greater Boston, which is especially important as communities in that region work to create inclusive Age- and Dementia Friendly environments.

Changing Faces of Greater Boston is a collaboration between Boston Indicators, the UMass Donahue Institute, the four free-standing research institutes at UMass Boston dedicated to the major communities of color (the Trotter Institute, the Gastón Institute, the Institute for Asian American Studies and the Institute for New England Native American Studies) and faculty from UMass Boston’s McCormack Graduate School.

The full report and the accompanying interactive data maps are a wealth of information and useful resources to having a conversation among Age-and Dementia Friendly stakeholders about access, equity and inclusion for residents of all ages in their communities.
