History

The Mayor's Office of New Bostonians (MONB) was established in 1998 to meet the needs of the growing and changing immigrant and newcomer communities in Boston. MONB's mission and objectives were formed through a democratic process that included dialogues across immigrant groups in Boston.

Mission

To strengthen the ability of diverse cultural and linguistic communities to play an active role in the economic, civic, social and cultural life in the city of Boston; to act as a catalyst for providing opportunity, access and equality for immigrants; to highlight the contributions and the essential role that immigrants have played and continue to play in making Boston the world class city that it is.

Objectives

To fulfill the Office’s mission, MONB works with City departments and diverse community partners to:

  • Improve New Bostonians’ access to city government, its services, and community resources;

  • Act as a catalyst for change and facilitate collaboration and understanding among immigrant communities and other stakeholders;

  • Identify and address key issues facing New Bostonian communities; and

  • Recognize and promote the significant contributions of New Bostonians, individually and collectively.
