Na’tisha Mills helps coordinate Embrace Boston’s local reparations efforts in Greater Boston, in partnership with key advocacy groups. Co-founding the MA Black Reparations Collective alongside N’COBRA New England, BECMA’s Black MA Coalition, and other key partners, Mills hosts a series of Massachusetts Statewide Reparations Convenings each year, activating a community base of over 1,000+ individuals from across the commonwealth.
Mills served as a key muscle on the local Reparations Planning Committee, which was established by Boston City-Councilor Julia Mejia and supported the nation’s first unanimous passing of Boston’s Reparations Taskforce in December 2022. Appointed to the Boston Reparations Taskforce by Mayor Michelle Wu in February 2023, Mills will aid in offering a recommended repair and reconciliation strategy for the municipality of Boston over the next two years.
She was one of the youngest names to be honored on Boston Magazine’s 150 Most Influential Bostonians of 2023 list as well as one of the 2023 finalists for the Nonprofit Excellence Awards in the Young Professional category. Mills studied political science at Rivier University (NH).
