Listening sessions will help develop state Communities of Color legislative agenda

baystatebanner

With the state legislative session slated to begin in January, members of the Massachusetts Black and Latino Caucus are preparing their agenda. The in-development 2017-2018 Communities of Color Agenda will include legislative solutions to concerns most impacting black and Latino communities.

To solicit public participation in identifying these solutions and building community support for them, the Caucus plans to convene a listening tour throughout the state. They aim to bring together Caucus members, residents and advocates.

Three listening sessions are scheduled this December — one each in Lawrence, Springfield and Roxbury. Community members are asked to further spread word to their networks.
