Rausch Report: Women’s History Month Recap (March 2023)

As Women's History Month comes to a close, I'm delighted to reflect on the work we've done this month and the inspiring conversations and events that took place in March. 

My third annual Local Leadership Lunch Series was a big success. I sat down with five phenomenal women from throughout our district (one of whom was nominated by you!) to discuss their incredible community work, future projects, the women who inspire them, and words of wisdom for other community leaders. 

If you missed any of these uplifting conversations (or want to see them again!), you can watch them right here on my Facebook page.  

This month's Rausch Report includes legislative and #BeccaBunch updates, local event highlights, upcoming town election information, ways to get involved throughout the district during Earth Month, and information on upcoming office hours.

For real-time updates, please follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. If you are a constituent and need assistance, please don't hesitate to call me and my team at (617) 722-1555, email me at, or attend upcoming office hours. We are here to help.   

Yours in service,  

Senator Becca Rausch   

The legislative session is in full swing! Bills have been assigned to committees, hearings are underway, and legislation is on the move. We've already enacted a supplemental budget that will fully fund universal school meals for the rest of this school year, backfill lost federal dollars for food security, fully fund a statewide education campaign about anti-choice fake women's health care (previously vetoed by Charlie Baker) and support a new abortion legal hotline, and more. You can find every bill that gets enacted into law this year here on the Legislature's website. (Want to see a different year's enacted laws? Just click on the year number and pick whatever year you want!) 

In addition to committee hearings and floor debates, my colleagues and I often host informational briefings with advocates for other legislators, legislative staff, press, and the public to learn about pressing policy and budgetary matters. This month, I co-hosted two briefings: one about civics education with Representative Andy Vargas and the Massachusetts Civic Learning Coalition, and another regarding mental health and suicide prevention with Representative Ted Philips and Samaritans, Inc.
