Kittredge Center, Room 301/303Holyoke Community College
Trainers: Annette Duke and Margaret Monsell, attorneys with Mass. Law Reform Institute

Register here.

At this training you will learn:

  • How the annual state budget process works
  • How the two-year legislative process works
  • How your agency (and individual) voice makes a difference and what it means to be heard
  • How our work together can pass laws and fund programs to prevent and end homelessness, with special attention paid to current legislative campaigns for Right to Counsel for tenants facing eviction and Eviction Sealing

Our trainers, Annette Duke and Margaret Monsell, staff attorneys at Mass Law Reform Institute, have extensive experience in leading budget and policy campaigns to pass laws that better the lives of low-income people in general and help prevent and end homelessness in particular. 

ALL are welcome, including front-line staff, managers and executive directors of your agencies, as well as consumers.  The broader cross-section we have in the room, the more we reflect the coalition necessary to make the change we seek.
