Bring a laptop/notebook and get involved with other nearby Ranked Choice Voting activists, to continue our legislative push to pass two RCV bills by the end of this summer. Pioneer Valley has co-sponsors in 8 of our 21 senate / house districts, but there's more work to be done to win over the remaining 13 legislators!
Our last chapter meeting drew 24 volunteers from across Western Mass, who have been taking actions since to nail down meetings with legislators, and drive constituents to call and email them. We are continuing this momentum and it'll take every single one of us to make it happen!
The UMass Center at Springfield is located in Tower Square at 1500 Main Street in Springfield (we'll be in Conference Room 043), which has its own onsite parking garage. All three levels of the garage contain 1,200 spaces, although visitors to the Center are encouraged to park on Level “A” of the garage. There are additional parking lots located in the vicinity of the Center as well.
