#ThatsMyPresident: Meet Leemarie Mosca, the new president & executive director of Rosie's Place.

The Boston Globe's Annika Hom talks with Leemarie Mosca, the new president and executive director of Rosie's Place Mosca serves as "the organization's fifth president" and is "responsible for overseeing organizational affairs, community engagement, and 123 staff members."

Apparently, the Globe's Metro Minute talked with Mosca but I've already used up all my free articles for the month so who knows what the interview was like? I digress: "Founded in 1974 as the first women's shelter in the country, Rosie's Place serves more than 12,000 local homeless and poor women a year, offering support through food, housing, and education services. The Boston nonprofit raises money for its programs through donations."

If the Globe's paywall has got you down then feel free to visit the Kip Tiernan memorial in person. It's located at Dartmouth and Newbury Streets in the Back Bay and contains inscriptions of Tiernan's writings.

Heck, while you're at it: check out Tiernan's papers at the Schlesinger Library!:

Turns out that loudmouthed woman from Dorchester really is all of us. Who knew?
