LWVMA Moderator Training on June 12 in Beverly

LWVMA is recognized locally and statewide for our work moderating informative, respectful, and inclusive candidate and issue forums. The competence and fairness of League-trained moderators has contributed to the high level of public trust LWVMA has earned. This work is essential to our mission and identity as a nonpartisan political organization working for good government.

In Fall 2019, cities will be in need of moderators for forums for many city council races! They will count on neighboring Leagues to help them. This is a great way to gain skills and get involved.

LWVMA and the League of Women Voters of Salem are co-hosting a moderator training on June 12. Acton League member and expert moderator Jo-Ann Berry will lead this training.

 Details:

  • Who should attend:  Whether you have never moderated before or are an experienced moderator looking to refresh your skills, this training is for you!  (This training is only for current League members)

Lobby Day for Single-Payer Bills on Wednesday at 11 am

Join MassCare at the Grand Staircase of the State House at 11AM for a mini-rally to kick things off. Senator Eldridge, lead sponsor of the Senate bill, and other community leaders will speak about the importance of this legislation. 

After we rally, we’ll break into small groups to visit our legislators and ask them to sponsor the bills. 

Don’t worry if you’ve never lobbied before – we’ll send you with experienced activists who will show you the ropes. We’re also providing everyone with packets to hand over to your legislators, which will include a fact sheet on the bill, media about the ballot question win, and where to find more resources on single payer. 

See you at 11AM on January 23rd!
