Legislative Action Day 2020: Save the Date and Plan to Join Us at the State House on February 27th
Posted November 20, 2019

We hope to see you at the State House for our annual Legislative Action Day on Thursday, February 27, 2020 in the Great Hall.

The event will be hosted by
State Representative Jim O'Day. Our keynote speaker will be Diane Yentel, President and CEO of the National Low Income Housing Coalition (and the Coalition's former Housing Policy Coordinator!) At Legislative Action Day, participants will hear from families, youth, and adults with lived experience of homelessness and housing instability, as well as researchers, advocates, and legislators. The day will focus on advocating for key 2019-2020 bill priorities and FY'21 budget priorities (coming soon).

The day will begin with check-in and light breakfast starting at 9 a.m., with the speaking program from 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
In the afternoon, participants will fan out across the State House to meet with legislators and their staff
to share their support for deeper investments in housing, homelessness prevention, emergency shelter, income support programs, and related resources. We will be offering assistance in setting up those meetings. (You can let us know you would like help in setting up legislative meetings by making note on the registration form.)

Registration is now open. Please register and help us spread the word.
