The Trump administration has made it clear to many of us that we need to act. But sometimes we feel powerless because we live in Massachusetts, known around the country as a liberal utopia. The truth is very different: state government in Massachusetts is broken. Our legislature has a Democratic super-majority, but in reality we have:
--failed to protect immigrants
--slashed public education funding
--just created new mandatory minimum prison sentences for non-violent drug offenses last year
--just voted last month to double down on disenfranchising the incarcerated
This is not what being "progressive" looks like. But we can fix it! Join us to learn more and then head over to The Field for a drink.
ABOUT ACT ON MASS (www.ActOnMass.org)
We are a group of activists who have spent years working on progressive campaigns and issues, and have seen our broken State House hold up progress again and again, from protecting immigrants to funding public education. Act on Mass will increase accountability in the state house through transparency, education, and advocacy.
