Call to Action: Call for Safe Communities on Monday!

This call comes from Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition (MIRA)

Please share with your networks – we want an overwhelming show of support:

Hundreds of people were at the State House Friday to show their support for the Safe Communities Act, which has a hearing from 10 am to 3 pm before the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security.

The powerful testimony from mayors, legislators, and a broad swath of civil rights, social justice, health, faith, education and community-based organizations, combined with the sheer number of supporters, is made a real impact.

Now we need your support to keep the pressure on our legislators.

On Monday, June 12, we want to flood legislators’ offices with calls in support of the Safe Communities Act. So we’re asking you to call your state Representative and your Senator, even if they’ve already endorsed the bill.

If you need help sharpening your message, check out our online resources. And if you don’t get a live person, leave a voicemail with your name, address, and your message of strong support for the Safe Communities Act. Urge your legislators to persuade undecided colleagues as well.

And spread the word! Please share this message with your networks over the weekend. At the very least, encourage five friends or relatives to call as well!

If you don’t know your legislators, find them here. Make sure to add them to your address book for easy reference in the future!

If you get a response please share it with us! Will they support this bill? CapeCodWomenforChange@gmail.com

And send an email to Speaker Robert DeLeo and Senate President Stan Rosenberg, as they are the ones who will decide if this bill goes to a vote.

Last, but not least, if you want to know just how much we have to be proud of in our Commonwealth, see the tsunami of live-tweets coming out of the Safe Communities Act hearing: #SafeCommunities.
