Anne Beauregard of Brockton will be honored as a member of the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women’s 2020 class of Commonwealth Heroines. Senator Michael Brady recommended Anne Beauregard for this recognition because of her dedication to the city, and mentorship of the women of Brockton. Ms. Beauregard will be honored with the other Commonwealth Heroines for her outstanding contributions to her community. The Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women will be virtually celebrating the seventeenth-annual Commonwealth Heroines Class of 2020. The Commission will be sharing a slideshow provided through a shared link on the original date of the event of June 24, 2020 on their social media platforms.


Anne Beauregard has long been a tireless advocate, passionate mentor, and devoted friend, whose dedication and service to the City of Brockton is second to none. During her two terms as Ward 5 City Councilor Anne made every effort to keep informed, constantly reviewing materials and meeting with various city department heads- and worked fervently to make sure residents were informed as well. In addition to attending nearly every City Council Meeting, she was a familiar face and voice at all the boards and commissions in the city. More than just a ward Councilor, Anne worked diligently to address the concerns of all residents- never turning away someone who came to ask her for help. To name only a few of her many volunteer/service activities she has served on the Real Estate Sub-Committee, Traffic Commission, the boards of Brockton Community Schools and the Adult Learning Center, is a volunteer with the Garden Club and Charity Guild, and runs the gift shops as well as countless programs for the library- never for personal gain and always as a labor of love.


The Commonwealth Heroines are women who don’t make the news but make the difference. Thousands of women in every community of the state perform unheralded acts on a daily basis that make our homes, neighborhoods, cities, and towns better places to live. Commonwealth Heroines use their time, talent, spirit, and enthusiasm to enrich the lives of others in their community. They are mentors, volunteers, and innovators who strive to protect and represent the interests of seniors, victims of violence, children, immigrants, and other vulnerable populations. They are the glue that keeps a community together.


“Anne has been a lifelong advocate for engaging women in local politics. Her dedication and effort are unmatched” said State Senator Michael D. Brady, “I can think of no one more deserving of this award.”


This event is made possible with the support of Eastern Bank, Eversource and Flour Bakery.
