2013 - Our First Annual Policy Conference

Progressive Massachusetts held our first annual policy conference on March 24, 2013, at Lasell College in Newton.  Over 150 progressive activists and experts attended and engaged in lively discussion across a range of issues that impact social, economic, environment and criminal justice. Featuring leading experts on progressive issues in Massachusetts, participants and presenters shared a broad perspective on each subject as well as suggest critical progressive solutions.

We intend our conferences to be the beginning or continuation of action — not the end.

Toward that aim, we are gathering relevant materials here for your referral and use in organizing, so that you can continue to use and build on the resources and information shared on March 24.
