General Membership Meeting – Special Forum “Know Your Sheriff”

This special forum is a collaboration between NAACP, Berkshire County Branch, the League of Women Voters, and the ACLU of Massachusetts.
Sheriffs have the power to make our communities safer and more just for all, but most Massachusetts voters don’t even know who their sheriff is.
It’s time to change that. It’s time to Know Your Sheriff.
Know Your Sheriff is a public education campaign by the ACLU of Massachusetts to build voter awareness about the life-changing decisions that sheriffs make.
Polling shows that many voters are not familiar with sheriffs—but when they learn more, they are more likely to cast a ballot for sheriff in the next election.
Polling also shows that voters favor treatment and education over punishment.
Knowing your sheriff means knowing that YOU have the power to demand safer communities and a more just criminal legal system.
There will be time to ask the two candidates, Alf Barbalunga for Sheriff and Tom Bowler for Sheriff questions via the Zoom Q&A function after the presentation portion.

All members will receive email with the Zoom link prior to the meeting. If you are not a member and wish to attend, send a request to
