Location: 
MCLE Conference Center, Ten Winter Place, Boston

The federally funded Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly called Food Stamps) remains the first line of defense against hunger for thousands of Massachusetts residents. Families and individuals often struggle with getting their SNAP applications and recertifications approved. Collecting all the required proofs, and having the required phone interview, can be overwhelming for an unrepresented household.

Location: 
State House, Great Hall    

Each year, hundreds of attorneys participate in one of the largest lobby days at the Massachusetts State House.
