Keri Rodrigues


Massachusetts Parents United


Keri Rodrigues is the founding president and Mom-in-Chief of Massachusetts Parents United. Keri received her GED from Boston Public Schools. Keri’s interest in advocacy developed early in her career as a political journalist and radio broadcaster and was then amplified through her work as a labor activist organizing the highly recognized labor union, 1199SEIU. After personally struggling with the educational system of her own children, Keri shifted gears and began focusing on educational reforms to help parents find their voice at the policy-making table so they can improve the lives of their families. Keri’s energy and enthusiasm for advocacy work is a core component in the success of MPU.
