Chynah Tyler

Office
Running for State Representative, Massachusetts, District 7 (2018)

Biography

Growing up, I attended Boston Public Schools and charter schools. Although I was a dedicated athlete, I excelled academically as well and was accepted into the Crimson Summer Academy at Harvard University. Upon completion of high school and simultaneously graduating from the Crimson Summer Academy, I continued my education earning my Bachelor’s of Science in Criminal Justice with a minor in Law, Policy and Society from Northeastern University.

After graduating college, I entered my professional career as a Case Worker for Federal Inmates assisting those nearing release with securing employment, housing and most importantly, community support. While there, I realized there are a host of barriers that contribute to recidivism. Because of that, I grew to understand the importance of the role the state government plays in delivering valuable resources to my community.

I had the pleasure to work as a Legislative Aide for a Massachusetts State Senator. In that position, I worked to secure funding for programs like Residential Assistance for Families in Transition Program (RAFT), community college reform, and environmentally-friendly organizations. I have also served the community through volunteering at the Probation Department of the Roxbury Division of the Boston Municipal Court as well as working full time as a professional and raising a child.

​I'm running because I have the ability to effectively create new and adjust existing policies in efforts to further enrich my community. I look forward to advancing the legacy of our neighborhood as your State Representative.
