  • This unique event allows you to share a table, zoom style, with one of the western Massachusetts Representatives or Senators and speak directly with them on topics that are important to you.
  • You and your concerns matter – raise your voice and your issue – Legislators want and need to hear from you.
  • Don’t sit this one out – engage your voice and you can impact policy decisions!
  • Share your story – let your representative know what policies and laws actually look like in action, in our families and our communities.
