Dear ACT-MA Colleagues,

Tech Networks of Boston (TNB) is pleased to invite you to a TNB Roundtable
session about why and how nonprofit organizations build political power.
Our featured guests will be Jordan Berg Powers of Mass Alliance and Lisette
Le of Massachusetts Voter Table.

that they can play a role to advocate and influence public policy. Some of
them are extremely concerned that key decisions are actually being made

Please note:

Participation in this session is free of charge for nonprofit
