The latest information on SNAP/ Food Stamp advocacy in Massachusetts.

First, we wanted to take a moment to share with you MLRI’s statement regarding yesterday’s guilty verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin. We join with our colleagues in expressing our grief, relief and commitment to our work to combat racism and injustice in MA and the nation.   View the statement below.

 

Thanks again for a terrific Coalition meeting and thanks to the Department of Public Health for their WIC presentation.  Our next Coalition meeting will be Tuesday 4/27 from 10-11:30 AM. Here are some follow up items.

As you may know, Mass Continuing Legal Education had some issues with their website in March and April, and had to postpone a number of their trainings. (In some cases, they also were unable to notify many registrants in advance of cancelled sessions, for which they deeply apologize and will extend credit to the rescheduled session.) 

Info on tomorrow's SNAP Coalition meeting below, along with an overview of the tens of millions of critical P-EBT dollars going out to families today!!
