The Western MA Health Equity Network, in partnership with the Massachusetts Public Health Association, is hosting a series of Information & Action Sessions to demystify the seemingly complex policy issues that greatly impact our daily lives—housing, transportation, and food. These free, foundation-level information sessions will provide participants with the basic information they need to understand key state-level transportation, housing, and food access policies, and what actions individuals can take to influence decision-makers.

Guest speakers include Phineas Baxandall from the MA Budget and Policy Center and Andrea Freeman from the MA Public Health Association.
