Somerville Commission for Women to Host Women’s History Month Event March 21

 

Please join the Somerville Commission for Women on Tuesday, March 21, for a special event in honor of Women’s History Month. “Shaping the Future: Our Community Dialogue,” will be held at The Highlander Café located in Somerville High School, beginning at 6 p.m. on March 21, and will include Q&A breakout sessions with local female elected officials, including representatives from Somerville’s State Delegation, as well as a brief presentation about the Somerville Commission for Women and its ongoing programs and initiatives.

 

The Commission bills the event as, “an opportunity to open the channels of communication for community members who may have never had a personal interaction with our local officials, as well as those that have been consistently engaged civically. The goal of this year’s event is to empower a diverse group of women to engage at their comfort level to shape the community,”

 

Childcare will be available, as well as translation services for anyone who may need them, however each must be requested in advance. For more information, please contact Chris Hosman, Community Services Manager at 627-625-6600 ext. 2406 or chosman@somervillema.gov.
