The Upcoming Elections: A Midterms Bootcamp

***Sign up at the Eventbrite page.

Join us and our special guest, Alice Peisch, MA State Rep, as we talk all things midterms.

----

We started For Now, in part, to tell the stories of emerging brands - we're suckers for a good narrative and we wanted to expand our stage to other topics that matter to us, such as politics.

That said, we're kicking things off with a midterm bootcamp; no equipment required - though you might still break a sweat. If you're anything like us, you have a lot of questions. What am I voting for? How should I vote? Do our votes mean anything on a national level?
