Lauri is currently advocating for changes in MA House Bill HB 1207: An Act Relative to Child-Centered Family Law. Thanks to the many survivors who wrote letters, sent postcards, and met with legislators to tell them how the original bill harmed survivors and children affected by domestic violence. Our efforts made a big difference!
