WOMEN MOVING OUR COMMUNITY FORWARD - A DISCUSSION ON PUBLIC ADVOCACY April 29, 2017 - NonProfit Center, Boston

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. ~ Margaret Mead

The Junior League of Boston (JL Boston) Training Council is proud to present “Women Moving Our Community Forward - a Discussion on Public Advocacy.” Join JL Boston at the NonProfit Center on Saturday, April 29, 2017, for a unique training and dialogue experience with Junior League members, advocates and women from our neighborhoods to discuss how we can move our community forward with public advocacy.

During a three-panel discussion, participants will learn about ways to take action in the community, how local and state politics work and will also hear the personal stories of women who have affected change in our neighborhoods and beyond.

The Junior League of Boston is thrilled to welcome many amazing women leaders to share their stories, experience, and knowledge with participants, including our keynote speaker Victoria Budson, Executive Director of the Women and Public Policy Program at the Harvard Kennedy School (http://wappp.hks.harvard.edu/people/victoria-budson).
