This past April, a fire in New Bedford’s North End killed two and displaced more than three dozen residents. It also destroyed the headquarters of one of the city’s grassroots non-profits: the Community Economic Development Center, which serves New Bedford’s growing Central American immigrant population.

Consider This cohost Arun Rath speaks with CAI reporter Daniel Ackerman, who found that even without a permanent home, the organization hasn’t missed a beat in getting back on its feet and into the community.

This segment aired on September 16, 2021.
