Register Today to Be Part of
Legislative Action Day 2020

Please register today for Legislative Action Day 2020 , taking place at the Massachusetts State House on Thursday, February 27th. Look forward to hearing from inspiring speakers, learning how to advocate with legislators, and meeting with your state legislators and legislative staff to talk about issues and policy recommendations to address homelessness in Massachusetts.

This year's Legislative Action Day event will be hosted by State Representative Jim O'Day in the Great Hall (second floor). Registration and light breakfast will begin at 9 a.m., and the formal agenda will run from 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. In the afternoon, participants will meet with legislative offices. Just indicate on your registration form if you need help setting up meetings with your legislators, and we will work to set up appointments for you.

At Legislative Action Day, we will be pushing for key budget and bill priorities , such as putting the new upstream rental arrearage program into state statute; increasing funding to $8 million for housing and services for unaccompanied youth and young adults; strengthening cash assistance programs for families with children, elders, and people with disabilities, easing access to Mass ID cards for people experiencing homelessness; creating more housing subsidies under the Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program and the Alternative Housing Voucher Program; and passing the bill of rights for people experiencing homelessness.

Registration is quick, easy, and free: Register now.
