Platform Hearings: Help Shape the State Democratic Party Agenda

Care about environmental protections, universal health care, civil rights, a living wage, overturning Citizens United, or other critically-important issues? Then consider lending your voice to the 2017 Massachusetts Democratic Party platform by attending a hearing this month. 

Every four years the state Party reviews and updates its platform. Throughout April, the Mass Dems are holding hearings across the state to get input on the platform from activists like you. You can see the full schedule below - all hearings are free and open to the public.
