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.
