BOSTON – On April 23, Senator Cindy Friedman (D-Arlington) and Representative Ken Gordon (D-Bedford) welcomed a group of Burlington Girl Up Leaders to the Massachusetts State House. The young leaders had the opportunity to speak directly with their legislators about some of the obstacles they face as young women in high school and asked important questions about how they can make an impact on state government.
“It was wonderful to welcome the Girl Up Leaders to the State House today,” Sen. Friedman said. “I am thrilled by their eagerness to become more engaged in politics, public policy and their community, especially when it involves making a difference in the lives of other young women. I look forward to working with these bright young leaders in the future!”
