with Lead Organizer of N2N to speak on criminal justice reform
February 20, 2018
Our March open meeting is this Saturday at 3:00pm at the Greenfield Public Library. Jacqueline Velez, Lead Organizer for Neighbor to Neighbor MA, will join us to discuss the omnibus criminal justice reform bill currently in legislation. Jacqueline was previously scheduled to join us last month, but had to postpone. We wrote postcards to our legislators about this bill at the conclusion of February's meeting, but we're looking forward to learning more.
Also, if you were unable to attend our "Run for Something!" panel with Beth Bandy, Penny Ricketts, and Francia Wisnewski on March 4, we have a Facebook Live video recording of it available on our Facebook page. Click hereto view it. We've updated our Franklin County Town Governance e-book, which offers a brief overview of Town Meeting dates and more for all our county's towns. You can find it on our website here, and minutes from our last open meeting are available here.
Members are coordinating smaller League social meet-ups to fill in the gaps between meetings and to get to know each other. If you'd like to arrange a meet-up in your town, let us know! We'll share more information as plans come together.
Our next volunteer service day at Stone Soup will be April 7. Sign up at one of the Doodle polls below. And if you have thoughts on where else LWVFC should spend its volunteer time, contact Christine.
