Be an Advocate for the Homeless in Massachusetts
Each year, the Mass. Coalition for the Homeless asks its members to come to the State House to call for more resources to prevent and end homelessness. This year the Coalition will be hosting Legislative Action Day on Wednesday, February 29th (Leap Day!) in the Great Hall of the State House. Registration will begin at 9 a.m., followed by a morning session at 9:30 a.m., and appointments with State Representatives and State Senators from noon to 3 p.m.
There will be an exciting and engaging series of speakers including legislators, religious leaders, providers, and youth who have experienced homelessness. Then in the afternoon session, everyone can have an opportunity to meet with the legislators and aides to talk about homelessness and the various campaigns that the Coalition is working on.
