An editorial by the Telegram & Gazette regarding a Worcester Human Rights Commission proposal to allow "noncitizen" residents of the city to serve on city boards and commissions cites a study by our Applied Research & Program Evaluation group (commissioned by the Seven Hills Foundation and co-authored by the Public Policy Center at UMass Dartmouth).
