April 25, 2017, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM Visit Legislators, Explore the State House, & Meet Other Massachusetts Homeschoolers
Join AHEM board members and volunteers from 10:00 am (sharp!) to noon on Tuesday, April 25 as we visit the historic Massachusetts State House on Beacon Hill in Boston. Meet in Doric Hall on the second floor. We’ll deliver packets of info and swag to the legislators of the 190th General Court, and pay visits to our individual elected officials. Afterwards you have options: tour the building, grab lunch, explore downtown Boston.
Because 2017 brings a new group of legislators to the State House, AHEM is encouraging homeschoolers to meet their elected officials--either at the State House on April 25, 2017, or arrange a meeting in their home office on a Friday. We want to show elected officials the diversity of homeschoolers in Massachusetts, and establish friendly lines of communication.
When you meet your elected officials, take a pic and post it to social media with the hashtag #AHEMStateHouseDay2017.
** Hope to see you on April 25!
