The Mass Nonprofit Network is starting a series of forums this week to look at the state budget and the need for new revenue. The first forum is in Westborough for the Metrowest and central regions, and will be held this Friday. Other forums will be in Boston, Easton, Northampton, and Lowell over the next two weeks.
The discussion will look at how budget cuts have resulted in the inability to meet our state’s critical needs; discuss ways nonprofit groups can be effective spokespeople for our constituents; and strategize on how to mobilize the nonprofit community around progressive revenue reform. These issues are critical for health care if we are to reverse the deep cuts made in the past decade to public health and other health needs, and make needed investments in improving our health.
Health Care For All is among the many groups sponsoring the forums, and we hope interested people will attend. For more information, check out the MNN web site.
