Awardees were nominated for being champions of community voice and initiatives that further economic justice in the Commonwealth. Lewis was recognized in particular for his work to make high-quality and affordable early education and childcare more accessible for families in Massachusetts.

With a mission “to advance an economically just region where prosperity is shared across race and ethnicity,” the United Way of Massachusetts Bay brings together individuals, community leaders, corporate partners, legislators, and organizations to work with communities to build economic prosperity and enable everyone to share in the knowledge, wealth, and resources available.

“I’m honored to receive this award from the United Way of Massachusetts Bay, and to partner with them in our critical work around early education and childcare,” said Lewis. “Advancing economic justice and opportunity for all our residents will continue to motivate my work in the state Legislature and our communities.”

“United Way of Massachusetts Bay is proud to recognize Sen. Jason Lewis for his leadership building a Massachusetts where everyone has access to financial wellbeing and prosperity is shared across race and ethnicity,” said Tom Samoluk, U.S. general counsel & head of U.S. government relations at John Hancock. “Senator Lewis is a changemaker, a ‘good trouble’ maker and a policymaker who is blazing trails for communities across the Commonwealth. Senator Lewis always puts children and their family's needs first. We are incredibly grateful for his leadership and unwavering commitment to ensuring early education and out of school time is both affordable and accessible.”
