Zakim Bridge Lighting to Mark Economic Independence Day
May 5, 2016
Lighting the path to economic independence.
The landmark Leonard P. Zakim Bridge will shine teal and white on the evening of May 5, 2016, to mark the celebration of Economic Independence Day in the City of Boston. This lighting symbolizes the economic mobility pathways that transform lives and lead low-income families out of poverty. Since 2006, Crittenton Women’s Union’s theory of change, Bridge to Self-Sufficiency®, and the Mobility Mentoring® service platform, has been guiding thousands of participants toward economic independence. The lighting precedes Crittenton Women’s Union’s annual Live! Work! Thrive! Gala, highlighting the measurable achievements of the families served by the nonprofit organization, how individuals’ successes are transforming lives far beyond Massachusetts, and the ways the organization is shaping the broader conversation around poverty disruption.
