CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Sept. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Senator Elizabeth Warren, Gilda Nogueira, President and CEO of East Cambridge Savings Bank, and Tim Rowe, Entrepreneur, and CEO of the CIC, will be the Honorees at the Margaret Fuller House 120th Anniversary Gala.

SENATOR WARREN AND MS. NOGUEIRA TO RECEIVE
THE 2022 MARGARET FULLER AWARD
ADVOCACY AND COMMUNITY SUPPORT
Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), a former Harvard law professor and senior United States Senator from Massachusetts, has served since 2013. Senator Warren has been a tireless advocate for the public interest, promoting equality and economic opportunity for all. Senator Warren’s extraordinary work to champion the voiceless in our society and her remarkable accomplishments and outstanding advocacy record aptly showcases her embodiment of the values of journalist and activist Margaret Fuller.
Elizabeth is one of the nation’s leading progressive voices, fighting for significant structural change that would transform our economy and rebuild the lives of many working and middle-class people.
Senator Warren consistently reaches across the aisle to deliver wins for Massachusetts, making her one of the most influential members of the Senate. She helped secure $750 million in debt relief for students cheated by predatory, for-profit colleges, including 4,500 Massachusetts students and more than 28,000 students across the country.
Before becoming the first woman ever elected to the Senate from Massachusetts in 2012, Elizabeth served as Chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP)—the oversight board set up in the aftermath of the financial crisis to protect taxpayers, hold Wall Street accountable, and help homeowners get back on their feet.
As a law professor for more than 30 years, Elizabeth taught commercial law, contracts, and bankruptcy courses. She has written over a hundred articles and eleven books, including four national best-sellers, This Fight Is Our Fight, A Fighting Chance, The Two-Income Trap, and All Your Worth.
Elizabeth and her husband, Bruce Mann, have been married for 41 years and live in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with their golden retriever, Bailey. They have three grandchildren. Elizabeth graduated from the University of Houston and Rutgers School of Law.

While in high school, Nogueira began her career with the Bank as a part-time teller. She has held numerous senior leadership roles at the Bank before being named President and CEO in 2012.

Nogueira supports numerous causes and organizations focused on improving the quality of life in the communities served by the Bank.
