The Rosie’s Place’s Public Policy department works to further the Rosie's Place mission by representing the interests of Rosie's Place guests at the State House. We accomplish this through direct lobbying, coalition building and by empowering guests and Rosie's Place supporters to be actively involved in advocacy.
Your Vote, Your Power
Rosie’s Place empowers our guests during the election season through voter education and mobilization activities. We host candidate forums so guests can meet candidates in person and offer voter registrations throughout the year at Rosie’s Place and other area shelters. The Public Policy department also publishes a non-partisan election guide for each election (see below) and we offer guests free rides to the polls on election day.
Volunteer Driver Spots Available
Volunteers are needed for the Rosie's Place Get Out the Vote effort for the City of Boston General Election on Tuesday, November 5th. Our Get Out the Vote event will be held from 9:00am to 3:00pm at Rosie's Place.
We are looking for volunteers who would be willing to provide transportation to guests on that day. Rosie's Place staff will organize the guests and provide driving directions. All you need to bring is your car and your safe driving skills!
