Committees

Committees are one of the primary ways we (MTPC Steering Committee, members, and volunteers) do our activism. Each committee addresses a specific topic or area. Committee membership is open to all, except Steering, which requires prior involvement with MTPC.

Please email us at info@masstpc.org if you are interested in participating on a committee.

Steering
