December 2016: Midas E-Newsletter

Dear Friend, 

The holiday season is the perfect time to share our gratitude and vision for 2017. Thank you for your continued support as Midas strives to achieve our vision of an economy where individuals and families thrive. As we close out 2016, we look back on a year that reinforced the need for a varied and collaborative approach in advancing financial security. In 2017, t here will be uncertainty with the new administration but our work has never been clearer.  We have to build our network and leverage our resources to protect and uplift those we serve - they are counting on us. 

Following our discussion about Collaborating for Economic Security with members, partners and stakeholders at our December 13th meeting, we have a pathway forward. That pathway requires communication, engagement at various levels, and highlighting the best policies and practices to ensure Massachusetts is a leader in economic justice.
