This class will use our state government as a vehicle for understanding how government works. How do laws get made through the legislature and the ballot? How do we inform and influence our Massachusetts legislators? How do these principles apply to our national advocacy as well? Feel empowered to hold your elected officials accountable to you and your values at every step and every level.
