The mission of the Massachusetts Policy and Organizing Leadership Academy (The Academy) is to help leaders and organizations effectively and confidently participate in public life and influence the advancement of social, economic and racial justice.
Announcement — The Public Policy Institute and it’s two projects,ONE Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Policy and Leadership Academy have moved out of our incubator at 30 Winter St where we have happily shared space with Health Care for All and Community Catalyst for many years. Lew Finfer’s MCAN will stay right where it is.
As of July 1 , PPI, the Mass Academy and ONE Mass transferred all of the hardware back to our offices in Dorchester and all the website management, email and electronic files up to the clouds.
You will still be able to reach Judy Meredith at Judy@realclout.org, Lew at firstname.lastname@example.org & Sondra Peskoe at email@example.com. The general number for PPI, the MA Leadership Academy and ONE Mass will be 617 338 0954. Lew, Sondra and I are already sharing other personal contact numbers on a need to know basis.
We are already doing a lot more in-person onsite work with leaders and staff of our community basedpartner organizations by scheduling training, coaching, campaign planning & strategizing at times convenient for parents and working people. We are very proud to be working with the Board, Staff and Members of Cape Verdean Community Unido in Dorchester, where our work is funded in part by a Vision Grant from The Boston Foundation .
So far the most “fun” on-site coaching event is a very lively,
interactive message development session which helps volunteer activists and professional advocates learn how to turn a Chicken Little story that people ignore, into a Little Train that Could story, that makes people want to get on the train and help.
