OPEN HOUSE, Rep. Kaufman’s monthly public policy series, was launched in 1995 to provide a forum for discussing the challenges and opportunities facing our community and Commonwealth. While Rep. Kaufman invites guests with expertise and experience in the policy area under consideration, the public is an integral part of the program, and audience participation typically directs the conversation. OPEN HOUSE has been named the best television series by the Massachusetts Cable Television Commission, and was awarded the cable industry’s Beacon Award as the nation’s best government relations series. OPEN HOUSE is produced in partnership with the Lexington Historical Society and LexMedia, which films the forums for broadcast in eastern Massachusetts.

May and June’s “OPEN HOUSE”

What Now?  Stand Up, Stand Tall, Stand Together

Please reserve the date to join Representative Jay Kaufman on Thursday, June 15 at Temple Isaiah, 55 Lincoln Street in Lexington from 7 to 9 PM for the fourth of the 4-part “Democracy Demands Engagement” forums.  Part of Representative Kaufman’s “OPEN HOUSE” public policy series, the focus as the culmination of the series is on:

“What’s Next: Stand Up, Stand Tall, Stand Together.”

The participatory workshop will be held on Thursday, June 15 at Temple Isaiah, 55 Lincoln Street in Lexington from 7 to 9 PM.  It is the culmination of the series and follows on the first three themes, “Challenging Times/Building Community” and “Identifying and Overcoming Divisions,” and “ Values-Based/Moral Action”.

For this concluding session, we will explore what actions we are moved to undertake as, individually and together, we take stock of our roles as citizens of the Commonwealth and nation in these challenging times.

If you are a part of or know of a group that should be a part of this evening’s discussion on enhancing democracy please let our office know by emailing Jacob at Jacob.blanton@mahouse.gov


Unlike regular “OPEN HOUSE” forums that are taped and broadcast by LexMedia, to encourage unfettered participation, this revolution will not be televised! Mark your calendars as we explore this challenging territory. RSVP by emailing Jacob.blanton@mahouse.gov.
