ERA NOW New England Chapter Meeting Feat. Danielle Allen, Candidate for Massachusetts Governor!
Today, the ERA NOW New England coalition has grown to 30+ endorsing organizations and 100+ feminists strong! Join us tonight for our Fall Coalition meeting to hear from Massachusetts Gubernatorial Candidate, Danielle Allen! We’ll be having a robust conversation about the different ways we can push at the local, state and federal levels for gender and racial equity – and increase our collaboration across silos to build more political power!
Danielle Allen is a mom, social entrepreneur, and nonprofit leader. She has advised presidents, governors, and mayors around the country on critical policy decisions. She has started and led a range of organizations, from local civic education providers to a global philanthropy.
