At Rosie’s Place, we don’t just educate our guests in the democratic process. We strive to engage and empower them through it.
The Public Policy program works to further Rosie’s Place’s mission within the larger socio-political context by representing the interests of Rosie’s Place guests at the State House through direct lobbying, coalition building and by empowering guests and Rosie’s Place supporters to be actively involved in advocacy.
