What is the Boston Activist Fraud all about?

The Boston activist is Monica Cannon-Grant, she helped found a nonprofit called “Violence in Boston”. She is however facing federal fraud charges.

She and her husband Clark Grant, were charged in an 18-count indictment “in connection with a series of alleged schemes designed to defraud VIB and its donors, the Massachusetts Department of Unemployment Assistance and a mortgage lending business based in Chicago,” according to a statement from the US Attorney’s office in Boston.

The indictment alleges that the defendants conspired to use VIB as a vehicle to solicit and receive charitable contributions from institutional and individual donors that was instead used for a wide range of personal expenses and to enrich themselves while concealing such expenditures from VIB directors, officers and others,” according to the US Attorney’s office.

The Boston activist and her husband were charged in an 18-count indictment alleging the couple spent financial donations to the nonprofit on themselves, using the cash to pay for hotel reservations, gas, restaurant meals, food deliveries, nail salon services, and personal travel, while concealing their transactions from bookkeepers, directors, and financial auditors.

The two also received roughly $100,000 in unemployment benefits which they were not entitled to, officials allege.

Grant collected $67,950 in COVID-19 pandemic unemployment benefits between May 2020 and September 2021 despite being employed full time, prosecutors alleged last year. 

In the latest indictment, prosecutors also allege Cannon-Grant defrauded the government of unemployment payments and collected approximately $33,426 in total.


With all this happening to the Boston activist, she has gone on to say that she was being targeted by white supremacists, the government, and a small number of Black people who are jealous of her, according to the Globe. Cannon-Grant referred to the probe in one tweet on March 8 as the “Federal investigation into no where.”
