Commission on the Status of Women Hearing
November 14 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women (MCSW) is hosting its first in-person public hearing of the program year in Dartmouth.
They are seeking registrants to give testimony on issues facing women, children, and families in Bristol County. Public hearings are an opportunity for women across the Commonwealth to give testimony on issues that matter most to them, which directly inform MCSW’s policy priorities for the 2023-2024 legislative session.
The event is free and open to the public and will be held at UMass Dartmouth. Hybrid options to join remotely will be available for those unable to join in person. Bristol county leaders, residents, legislators, and other community stakeholders are invited to attend either virtually or in person, and testimony is open to any member of the public.
ASL Interpreting, Closed Captioning, and other language accessibility needs will be available for this event.
Please register by Nov. 10, 2023 to indicate your need.
