Southeastern Mass (ATSEMA)

Map of Massachusetts with southeastern region highlightedAbout our regional group:

Stretching from the northern-most tip of Boston’s South Shore, across the Cape and Islands, and down through northern Bristol County to Massachusetts’ South Coast, the Southeastern regional group of Action Together Massachusetts spans a wide geographic area. We try to collect and share information on events throughout this area, and we ally with several other groups in this large region.

FILM – LUNAFEST: Short Films By, For, About Women®

LUNAFEST, the fundraising film festival dedicated to promoting awareness about women’s issues, highlighting women filmmakers, and bringing women together in their communities, will be hosted by ATSEMA in New Bedford.

This unique film festival highlights women as leaders in society, illustrated through eight short films by women filmmakers. The films range from animation to fictional drama, and cover topics such as women’s health, body image, relationships, cultural diversity and breaking barriers.


Dr. Laurie Santos will keynote our Women’s Forum.

Manny DeBrito will keynote our Men’s Forum on being good allies.

MARCH – Once again we will meet at Custom House Square/54th Regiment Park to march through downtown New Bedford. Dr. Kim Holland will give the Women’s March address.
