Human Relations Committee Member Profiles

Kathleen FitzGerald (Co-chair)
I am excited to find ways to build on the already strong sense of community in Maynard. I love this town and want to be a part of ensuring that it is a welcoming and just place for all residents and visitors.
Michael Lisasa
I joined the committee because I want to be a voice for those who don’t have one.
Caroline Mahiti
I joined this committee because I enjoy working with people and I want to better our lives to be the best we can be for one another. Starting this work at the local level will help me get to know and understand what people care about and want to uphold for generations to come.
Chief Michael Noble
The Human Relations Committee was formed because with the unrest in the nation over the last decade the Maynard Police Department wanted to create a forum for all its citizens to communicate and be heard. As a member on this committee I am able to listen to the ideas, views, and concerns of people from different backgrounds which ultimately will greatly enhance the department’s ability to serve the Maynard community.
Eliot Prisby
Eliot joined the Maynard Human Relations Committee to work towards a Maynard where all are welcomed, regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, or citizenship.
Rachel Tryba (Co-chair) has been a Maynard resident since 2013. Her interest in volunteering for the Human Rights Committee stems from her work as a high school counselor, serving students and families with diverse backgrounds and needs. Rachel is committed to making Maynard a welcoming place for all by engaging with the community and supporting initiatives to establish a fair, democratic environment where all citizens are valued and celebrated for their unique, individual experiences.
