MCSW Public Hearing: Gardner

Rain date: This event is rain or shine.
Fees: This event is free and open to all.

We want to hear from you! Join the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women (MCSW) for a hybrid event focusing on issues affecting women and girls in the Commonwealth.

We’re seeking registrants to give testimony on issues facing women, children, and families. Your input on issues that matter to you directly informs the MCSW legislative agenda and policy priorities. Join us and make your voice heard!

The event is free and open to the public and will be livestreamed for those who cannot attend in person. Residents, legislators, and other community stakeholders from Worcester, Franklin, and Upper Middlesex counties and across the Commonwealth are invited to attend, and testimony is open to any member of the public including elected officials. We’re asking anyone interested in issues that impact women, children, and families to share their experiences, to learn from one another, and create change, together. Register by Thursday, March 21, 2024. Accessibility accommodations cannot be guaranteed for those registering after the deadline.

What: Hybrid Public Hearing
When: Thursday March 28, 2024
Where: The South Cafe, Mount Wachusett Community College.
Time: 5:30-7:30pm ET

Please park in Lot C at the Garner Campus of Mount Wachusett Community College. Follow appropriate signage to The South Cafe for the event.
Why: The Commission holds multiple public hearings around the Commonwealth each year. The purpose of our public hearings is to give community stakeholders the opportunity to discuss issues and concerns important to women, as well as the gaps or barriers they have experienced in the provision of services available. Public Hearings are an opportunity to give testimony on issues that matter most to you, which then directly inform MCSW’s policy priorities.
