Nurys Camargo has been appointed a commissioner with the Massachusetts Cannabis Commission.

Camargo in 2011 founded Chica Project, a non-profit dedicated to closing the opportunity divide for young Latinas and other women of color by empowering them with the skills and tools necessary to thrive personally and professionally. For more than 20 years, she has served as an adviser and strategist to local, statewide and congressional campaigns for women and candidates of color.

Camargo most recently led statewide, municipal legislative, and community affairs for AT&T as the regional director of external affairs for Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Prior to her role at AT&T, she launched and led a statewide interagency program, Safe and Successful Youth Initiative (SSYI), for Massachusetts’ Executive Office of Health and Human Services and the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security. At SSYI, Camargo established metric systems and managed program outcomes with non-profit leaders and community stakeholders to help reduce recidivism, by extending wrap-around services and transitional programming for proven-risk males ages 17-24 in 11 of the state’s gateway cities.

Camargo holds a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from Mount Ida College and a Master of Public Administration from Baruch College through the National Urban Fellows Program.
