Connor Ring

Connor Ring is a Project Manager for the Somerville Community Corporation. Connor’s work focuses on the developing, acquiring, and preserving affordable housing in the City. For him, this mission is deeply personal. He was born and raised in the Somerville and has witnessed the steady erosion of affordable housing that has long made the city a haven for working-class residents, immigrant families, students, renters, artists, and homeowners alike.

Prior to joining SCC, Connor worked as a community organizer with public housing tenants in New England’s largest public housing development in Charlestown. His work focused on developing the capacity of the tenant leaders as they embarked on an ambitious mixed-income redevelopment project alongside the Boston Housing Authority and their development partners. This experience gave him an immense respect for the power of and promise of tenant leadership in affordable housing. He has served as a consultant to the Somerville Community Land Trust, a tenant organizer with CityLife/VidaUrbana, and as a participant in the Federal Home Loan Bank of Boston’s Affordable Housing Design Competition.

Connor holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and a masters degree in Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning from Tufts University. In his free time, he likes to ride and fix old bicycles, go camping, and embark on over-ambitious DIY projects. He lives in Malden, MA with his wife and son.

Somerville sits on the original homelands of the Massachusett, Wampanoag, Naumkeag, and Nipmuc tribal nations. We acknowledge the painful history of genocide and forced removal from this territory, and we honor and respect the many diverse Indigenous peoples still connected to this land on which we live and work.
