Public Hearings

Let your voice be heard at one of our regional public hearings

The Commission holds four public hearings around the Commonwealth each year. The purpose of our public hearings is to give community stakeholders the opportunity to discuss issues and concerns important to women, as well as the gaps or barriers they have experienced in the provision of services available. To RSVP to any of our 2018/2019 hearings, please call the office at 617-626-6520 or email mcsw@state.ma.us.
