Asian American Civic Association
Nominated by ABCD affiliate, the Asian American Civic Association (AACA), Clare Sheridan considers herself to be “on call” for AACA. Raised in Queens NY, the Medford resident has provided support for the AACA gala and edited articles for the Sampan newspaper, among other tasks.
Retired after 35 years as a librarian with the American Textile History Museum in Lowell and nine years with UMass Boston, Clare is engaged at every political level: locally, nationally and internationally. An avid reader and follower of political news, she enjoys travel in the U.S. and abroad, and is committed to volunteer work.
“I think AACA is…the premier organization in the Boston area” helping immigrants and low-income communities, she said. From English language classes and job training to immigration services and tax preparation assistance, “They are the best at what they do!”
