Our Advocacy


Working on behalf of Children and Families on Beacon Hill

CLM works together with our members and coalition partners to advocate for the best possible services for children and families in the Commonwealth. CLM works with state legislators to create change in the General Laws and we work with the state administration to implement change in regulations and the delivery of services to protect children and provide resources for families in need.

CLM is currently working on many areas affecting our most vulnerable population, our children. CLM members participate in task forces to focus on specific legislation, budget, and administration topics relevant to their work.
