SAVE THE DATE: Join LWVMA and a lineup of inspiring speakers at our Spring Conference, “Beyond the March: Massachusetts Women as Agents of Democracy,” April 28 from 9:30 until 2:30 at Clark University in Worcester. Registration and speaker details will be shared shortly.
The focus of the conference will be on the serious challenges facing our democratic norms, institutions, and processes and on steps that ordinary citizens can take to repair and protect our democracy. In the current political moment, women in particular are feeling energized to “do something” to fix political institutions that are widely perceived as broken. The Women’s Marches captured much of that energy in an inspiring way, but the question now is how do we harness that energy to effect change and bolster our democracy at the national, state, and local levels.
