Massachusetts Public Higher Education Advocacy Day on March 8

Key stakeholders representing all factions of public higher education — labor, management and students — will join forces to advocate for increased funding on a lobby day promoting public higher education on Thursday, March 8 at the Massachusetts Statehouse.

This is the first time — or at least the first time in years — that all of the sectors of public higher education will be present and spreading the same message at the same time.

At a time when public dollars are scarce, every voice is needed to send the message to legislators who will be shaping the state budget in the upcoming months.

The lobby day will be from 11 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. at the Statehouse. MTA members are invited to a pre-lobby day gathering at MTA headquarters, 20 Ashburton Place, beginning at 10 a.m.
