Massachusetts State SNAP Supplement The Department of Transitional Assistance is pleased to announce the launch of the new State SNAP Supplement effective February 14th, 2024. This supplement will help lawfully-present immigrants who are living in Massachusetts buy food. People who do not qualify for federal SNAP benefits may qualify for this. Starting February 14, many individuals and families will begin receiving the State SNAP Supplement. If a person applied for SNAP before December 4 and was denied, they should reapply. If a person applied for SNAP after December 4, they do not need to reapply, even if they were denied. If a person newly applies, DTA will contact them to process their application The department has also set up a web page with FAQ and helpful information: mass.gov/statesnap For more information about SNAP and to apply: https://www.mass.gov/snap-benefits-formerly-food-stamps

COLORISM 101: HISTORY, HOW IT WORKS, RESISTANCE STRATEGIES ON FEBRUARY 7, 2024 AT 6 PM The NAACP, Berkshire County Branch invites the public to join the branch and our special guest Assistant Professor of Africana Studies at Williams, Dr. VaNatta S. Ford for Colorism 101. During this presentation Dr. Ford will discuss the history of colorism, how it functions, and strategies to resist colorist behaviors and practices. Colorism has been defined as the privileging of light skin tone over dark skin tone. The stigma of colorism continues to produce discord, distrust, discrimination, and cultural disconnects between Black and White individuals as well as within the Black American family and community.
