Brockton is a city of about 100,000 in Southeastern Massachusetts. It’s known by some as the “City of Champions” because Rocky Marciano and Marvin Hagler are both from Brockton. The city has been down on its luck for some time, but there are signs of revival underway. Today, I donated to Prova!, a pop-up park that will use food, beer, and multi-cultural entertainment to bring diverse life back to Brockton’s downtown. I used the Patronicity platform, which has also arranged for matching grants from Mass Development, if the fundraising hits its goals.
