W.A.V.E (Women. Action. Voice. Empowerment) with Councilwoman Linda Pereira

On February 1,  the W.A.V.E girls of Diman Vocational Regional High School were fortunate enough to meet with Fall River Councilwoman Linda Pereira. Councilwoman Pereira discussed her early life growing up in Fall River as well as her decision to run for City Council. Pereira also discussed her full-time position as an investigator for child abuse cases for the Bristol County District Attorney’s Office.

The girls were able to get in some questions that they had for Councilwoman Pereira. We hope to have Pereira re-join our group to further discuss some of the issues that youth in Fall River are currently facing.  This could help continue building the bridge to connect the City Council and youth.
