US Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, Carmen Ortiz, will explore this crucial issue for our community and share her statewide efforts at building advocacy and awareness. Carmen Ortiz, US Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, is the first Hispanic and the first woman to represent Massachusetts as United States Attorney.
