Jessica Paulino is a mother, facilitator, community organizer, and an advocate for Maternal Health and Migrant Rights.  She has a passion for movement work, circle building, liberatory frameworks, and healing through restorative and social justice practices. She brings a wealth of operational and strategic planning expertise. A daughter of Dominican immigrants, Jessica was raised between Boston and the Dominican Republic. She is a proud graduate of Boston Public Schools, Massachusetts Bay Community College, and Boston University.

Jessica was a previous participant of UFE’s Facilitator Training at The Highlander Center which motivated her to join the organization. She is very excited to lead UFE's fundraising and donor engagement work and is eager to support social justice movements by organizing donors and philanthropists to fund transformative organizing work while creating opportunities for the most vulnerable.

As a member of the 2023 Creating Freedom Movements (CFM) Cohort Jessica is extensively training to cultivate holistic, visionary leadership through liberation frameworks. CFM grows beloved community & cross-issue solidarity and incubates justice & joy projects that push our world in a liberatory direction.

Jessica has deep community ties and thrives on connecting others to the resources and support they need. She is active in multiple organizations including as a board member for TAGa and Propa City Community Outreach.  She currently serves on the Mind the Gap Coalition for the Moms Matter Act, a legislative bill that supports perinatal mental health resources. She is the Founder of The EMA Project and Golden Flor Wellness which supports families via bereavement support, birth and postpartum care as a Doula and has been recognized by the Boston City Council for her maternal health advocacy.

She loves to connect with others, cook, dance, meditate, practice yoga, and travel!
