We're kicking off a three-part series of Civics Nights at The Village Works. Tickets are free but limited. RSVP.



It’s 2019. You care about an issue, and you want your electeds to care about it, too.


You’ve signed a petition, written a personal letter, or showed up at a protest, but what’s the best way to influence their priorities? Help them get to know you!

We’ll hear from four passionate officials, both local and state, about what moves the needle for them—and the support they need from constituents when they’re doing the work you care about.

We’ll also ask some tough questions. How can we communicate effectively when our officials have a position we disagree with? And when our views are aligned, how can we encourage them to really stand up for our issues?

We’ll start with a laid-back 45-minute panel chat with questions and answers, followed by time to connect with fellow civic-minded individuals over special sips and delectable cheese from Brookline Village favorite Curds & Co.
