Do you, or someone you know, have first-hand experience with homelessness? Would you like to have your opinions heard by a member of the Massachusetts state government? Then, come to ACC’s brainstorming session this Wednesday, January 25th from 10 am to 11:30 am to help come up with issues that we would like to bring forward to Solomon Goldstein-Rose, the newly elected representative for the 3rd Hampshire District in the Massachusetts House of Representatives, regarding homelessness and housing insecurity. Your voice matters—make sure that it is heard!

There are many questions and concerns surrounding the future of civil rights under the Trump administration. What are the prospects of a Muslim registry? What will be the future of marriage equality? Will refugees and immigrants have their status rescinded? Can Roe v. Wade be overturned? Will stop-and-frisk be enacted nationwide? Will there be a shift in the system of checks and balances? What protections does our constitution afford and what recourse is available to targeted communities? For an in-depth analysis of these issues and more, please join us for an interactive session with Professor Sudha Setty of Western New England University School of Law.
