Join us on Wednesday, June 15, at the Sheraton in Framingham for the Massachusetts Bar Association’s Access to Justice Awards Celebration.
This year's keynote speaker is the Honorable Joseph P. Kennedy III. Kennedy has dedicated his career to social and economic justice, fighting for the basic needs of every American family and a political system that is inclusive, representative, and fair. The U.S. Representative for Massachusetts’s 4th congressional district from 2013-2021, he ran for office to tackle the systemic inequities – from health care and housing to climate and education – that have left countless American families locked out and left behind. A former Peace Corps member, legal aid volunteer, and assistant district attorney, he has worked tirelessly for the people most at risk, most marginalized, and most in need.
