Become a fan of the Women's Fund!

Dear Friend,

Are you someone who is passionate about improving your community? Do you like to get involved in making positive change? You don’t have to think of yourself as a future politician, just as someone who wants to make a difference. If this describes you or any other woman you know in western Massachusetts , I personally invite you to come to our kick-off celebration for the Women’s Fund Leadership Institute for Political Impact on March 27. You’ll hear an amazing keynote speaker, learn from veteran and new female elected officials, network with other like-minded women, and find out more about the Leadership Institute for Political Impact.

Who else might be interested? Think about the women you know. Perhaps there is a young woman who is a terrific community organizer, or another who excels at her work and is committed to making her neighborhood better. Maybe it’s that woman who is always signing up for committees. Please help us spread the word and pass this on!

Register for the free kick-off celebration by contacting or calling 529-0087 x 10. Find out more about the Women’s Fund of Western Massachusetts.

Thank you.

Carla Oleska

CEO, Women’s Fund of Western Massachusetts

OFA 2010 Strategy Session at the Dam Cafe in Holyoke

Want to make sure we don't have a repeat of the January special election?

Join Organizing for America for our 2010 Strategy Session in your area. The Strategy Sessions are a chance to talk with OFA staff and other volunteers in your area about our legislative and electoral plan for 2010.

As an organization, we have come a long way in the past year. We have lessons to learn from the budget pledge drive, health insurance reform and the Massachusetts Senate Race.

Now is the time to bring those lessons together and look forward to 2010. There are countless opportunities to create change in the coming year and we have an important role to play in making that happen. As a team, we will talk about how to be involved in creating change in our country, both legislatively and electorally. We will talk through national strategy and discuss together what that means for our local community.

Time: Saturday, March 13 from 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Host: John Spears
Contact Phone: 617.806.6137

A Message from Corinne Wingard

Hi Everyone!

Lt Governor Tim Murray will be in town this Saturday, March 6th, at 1:00 p.m. to hold a Patrick-Murray Campaign Organizing Meeting for Greater Springfield!

We will meet at DeNardo’s Restaurant, 39 Maple St., in East Longmeadow

In the next 5 weeks we’ll be getting signatures for the Nomination Papers for Governor Deval Patrick and Lt Governor Tim Murray. We’ll be canvassing some neighborhoods and targeting high traffic areas in others. We’ll also begin to ID our voters.

Come and get “fired up” with Tim!!!

Refreshments will be served and everyone who attends will be entered in a raffle to win a great prize, to be announced!

Hope to see you there!
