​Brenda Quintana

Brenda Quintana came to MassCOSH early 2020 as the Worker Center Organizer, providing direct support and training to immigrant workers organizing to defend and advocate for their rights as workers. Brenda works closely with Worker Center Director Milagros Barreto to build leadership and participation among worker center members and engage other workers centers, unions, and community groups in the Greater Boston area.  

A transplant to Boston, Brenda grew up in Utah and is a graduate of Wesleyan University in Connecticut. Before joining MassCOSH, Brenda was previously a Community Organizer and Quaker Voluntary Service fellow with Metrowest Worker Center - Casa del Trabajador. Since moving to Massachusetts, Brenda has felt humbled and empowered to work alongside and learn from longtime community leaders and activists doing important work for low-wage, working class, migrant and communities of color in the Commonwealth.
