Legislative Advocacy 101 with Jill Ashton

Massachusetts State House
Date & Time
05.08.2019 9:00am - 11:00am
Location
Kuumba Library (2nd Floor), YW Boston Building, 140 Clarendon St

 

Please join us for a training on legislative advocacy, offered by Jill Ashton, Director of the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women (MCSW). The training will cover the basics of how a bill becomes a law and how to advocate with your legislators, followed by a deeper dive into MCSW’s priority legislation that YW Boston also supports. Coffee and tea will be provided.

If you plan to participate with YW Boston in MCSW Advocacy Day at the State House on May 21, we recommend that you attend this training. However, all are welcome at the training, and you do not need to participate in Advocacy Day to attend. If you are able to join us on Advocacy Day, though, sign up to attend with us!

The YW Boston building and Kuumba Library are accessible by stairs and elevator. Please note that the accessible entrance to YW Boston’s building is on Stuart Street.
