Alisa Costa Initiative Director
I am initiative director for Berkshire Bridges Working Cities, a resident-driven initiative focused on building economic opportunity for all regardless of background. It celebrates residents as leaders in building their own community to experience a just, thriving, and safe Berkshires for all.
My background is in non-profit social justice and advocacy. A recent resident of Pittsfield, MA, I moved to the Berkshires from New York’s Capital Region, where I did mostly statewide work. Now I find myself moving to the local level and practicing community building literally from the ground up. It's been really exciting learning about Pittsfield, the Berkshires, and community development.
