League of Women Voters of Brookline Lobbies on Beacon Hill
The League of Women Voters of Brookline joined many other Leagues around from around the State in a Day on the Hill to lobby for or against various issues. This event is held annually. It gives League members an opportunity to meet face to face with their representatives and query them directly as to where they stand on the issues of interest to the League.

League of Women Voters of Brookline Meets with U.S. Representative Joseph Kennedy
Members of the Board of Directors of the League of Women Voters of Brookline (LWVB) met with U.S. Representative Joseph Kennedy, D-MA 4th District, at his Newton office March 13th. The purpose was to discuss the commonalities between positions that after in-depth study have been endorsed at any level of the League (US, MA, Brookline) and the Issues being addressed by Rep. Kennedy.
Rep. Kennedy emphasized how important it is to have constituents call his office around issues, and especially when difficult debates are going on to know that his constituents "have his back" (e.g. during GOP's "Obamacare" replacement bill debate in the House, Energy and Commerce Committee, where Kennedy forcefully argued against the replacement bill).
