"A Listening Session"

From MA Energy and Environmental Bureau

The Attorney General Maura Healey’s Energy and Environmental Bureau will be hosting a series of Listening Sessions across the Commonwealth this Spring. We hope you can join us for an evening of learning and sharing information about the environmental and energy issues that are important to you and your community. Our first Energy and Environmental Bureau Listening Session will be at the Chelsea Collaborative on Thursday, March 31st from 6-8pm.

Each Listening Session will begin with a brief overview of the work of the Energy and Environment Bureau, but will be devoted to hearing directly from residents about the range of issues that concern you—whether it’s drinking water quality, childhood asthma in your community, lead paint, water pollution, proposed energy projects, climate change, toxic chemicals in the environment, energy costs, solar power, pollinator health, or another issue, we want to hear your thoughts! Our hope is to gain greater insight into the ways that specific environmental and energy issues affect communities across the Commonwealth by hearing directly from those residents about their experiences and concerns.

These events are open to the public, and we hope you will join us.

For questions about these listening session, please contact the Community Engagement Division at AGOCommunityEngagement@State.MA.US.
