State House Advocacy Day
for Afterschool & Expanded Learning Opportunities
Massachusetts State House, Great Hall, 10:00 AM
Registration begins at 9 AM
Now more than ever, it is critical to tell our legislators how essential quality afterschool and expanded learning opportunities are to the development of the whole child. For providing quality services, supporting working families, supporting economic growth, strengthening workforce development and keeping kids safe, the answer is simple:
The children and youth that you serve need your voice to be heard at the State House this year. We’re calling for your presence at the annual Afterschool and Expanded Learning Opportunities Advocacy Day to tell your legislator how vital your program is to your community. For help contacting your legislator to make an appointment, or to find out how you can get involved in Advocacy Day 2013, contact Nicole Wilkins at MAP.
Ready, Set, Advocate!
