Kendra Hicks, currently director of radical philanthropy at Resist, and a former Boston street worker, says she is running for the District 6 City Council seat now held by Matt O'Malley.
Whether it be organizing against a highway, fending off the construction of a Kmart, or calling for the city to prioritize Youth First in Jackson Square, the story of District 6 is the story of ordinary people coming together to make their neighborhoods better for everyone. Kendra Hicks is a part of that story.
The district includes Jamaica Plain and West Roxbury and a small strip of Roslindale. O'Malley was first elected to the seat in 2010.
