Earlier this week on Monday, February 10th, I spent the morning at the Massachusetts State House for the 13th Annual Civil Legal Aid Constituent Services Briefing. Legal aid advocates from across the state spoke to leaders, aides, and state house staffers about issues that impact people. Specifically, the Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation brought in attorneys to focus on unemployment, the impact of the American Care Act on health care, housing, foreclosures, homelessness, domestic violence, and government benefits. I have included a few pictures from the morning below.
In addition to meeting legislative staffers from offices based out of Worcester and Hampden County, I met Christine Lee who is a reporter for Channel 22 News. I would just like to note that she was a lawyer before she became a journalist. Follow her on Twitter at @christinenews .
