An Act to End Child Marriage in Massachusetts - A Discussion with Rep. Kay Khan
HD583 and SD343, legislative bills to end child marriage in Massachusetts, have been filed by State Senator Harriette Chandler and State Representative Kay Khan. Representative Kay Khan will discuss why she and Senator Chandler filed these pieces of legislation, the legislative process to attain a ban on child marriage in Massachusetts, and how social work students can engage in advocacy in support of these bills.
STATE REPRESENTATIVE KAY KHAN has represented Newton in the Massachusetts House of Representatives since 1995. She was originally appointed by Speaker Robert DeLeo in 2009 to serve as the House Chair of the Joint Committee on Children, Families and Persons with Disabilities and has served in this capacity ever since. Representative Khan is the founder and Co-Chair of the legislative Mental Health Caucus, the first of its kind in the country, and founder and Co-Chair of the Task Force on Justice Involved Women and Their Children, under the aegis of the Massachusetts Caucus of Women Legislators.
