Representatives of the Mauricio Gastón Institute will be at the Springfield Main Library (220 State St.) on Thursday, 1-3PM, to hear from you. These listening sessions, which are happening all over the Commonwealth, are designed to increase awareness of the Gastón Institute and get guidance from the community for its research and policy agendas. One more way to direct resources to to the issues we know are regionally critical. We are hoping that The Springfield Institute can coordinate with The Gastón Institute more closely in the future.
