LWVMA Phonathon in Newton

Did you get a phone call from an LWVN member on Friday?  It was likely one of our volunteers for the LWVMA Phonathon, the annual Fall Appeal from the State League.  Ten percent of your LWVMA donation will go to LWVN, so thanks to all for their support of both organizations.  We especially want to thank Bonnie Carter, Frieda Dweck, Linda Morrison, and Sharyn Roberts for their efforts!

Many thanks to Newton’s State Delegation–LWVMA Day on the Hill update

Many thanks to Senator Cindy Creem, State Representatives Ruth Balser, Kay Khan, and John Lawn, and their staff for joining LWVN members on Tuesday, LWVMA’s Day on the Hill.

Senator Creem and Representative Patricia Haddad (5th Bristol District) lauded the League for its commitment to voting rights and citizen action.  Creem, who is the sponsor for AVR and a criminal justice reform bill repealing mandatory minimums, urged League members to continue their pressure on the legislature to pass those bills.  Haddad noted the voting reforms, including early voting, that the League was instrumental in passing in the past and noted that AVR is the next step in making it more convenient for people to vote.
