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, Lew at & Sondra Peskoe at 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.


Email Judy if you want us to come to your board meeting or staff meeting or membership event to share this lively interactive session we call, “The Little Chicken or the Little Train.

Coming up this fall is an update of our other most popular session helping you to talk about your issue in hard times.
