Calls to Action – A Pep Talk! (updated)

“Don’t get distracted! It’s happening now! Use your voice! Use it NOW!” Each one of us is the constituent of many different legislators, federal, state and local. Our voice important and our input should be valuable to everyone who represents us, regardless of party. If you think your legislator will support a bill that you…

Use your voice! Will your legislator support local immigrants?

The Safe Communities Act is stuck in committee and will die there, without ever making it to the floor for a legislative vote if the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security doesn’t act by FEBRUARY 7. This would mean the people we elect to serve us in the state legislature would not have the opportunity to REPRESENT us. Furthermore, Cape Cod has now become more anti-immigrant, as our own sheriff has now agreed to take money from the federal government to make his deputies extensions of ICE.

Call to Action: Immigration in MA, tell legislators and the governor to support ‘The Safe Communities Act’

Contact the chairs of the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security, the bill is sitting in this committee and will get nowhere if they don’t vote it out of committee and move it to the floor for a vote- DEADLINE Feb 7.
Among other things this bill, filed in both the MA house and the senate, operates within federal laws, despite what critics and opponents will say. Let’s be clear, this would not defy federal laws and subject us to the loss of federal funds. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

Do you want to be more involved in what we are doing?

We have events coming up in the fall that we need help organizing, advocacy that needs to be shared and we want to hold our first general meeting in September or October, one we are considering a postcard party for women where we will fill out and mail postcards to legislators at all levels of government advocating for the legislation and issues that are important to women and families.

CALL TO ACTION! SAVE healthcare, STOP Trumpcare, what YOU can do NOW

What is going on in our government right now is atrocious. Thirteen white, male, U.S. senators are crafting legislation that will impact all of us, and will effect 1/6 of the US economy in secret, behind closed doors. Mitch McConnell is going to allow this bill to go to a vote NEXT WEEK without ANY public hearings, and will manipulate rules to prevent any amendments. We must speak up and speak out NOW!! Here’s what you can do.

Call to Action! Please send letters of support for Housing Court to State Budget Committee

We need you send/email to letters of support! The Housing Court is a layer of protection for women who rent. MA has adopted the key provisions of the federal Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and parts are related to issues with landlords. Housing Courts are where women can enforce these protections. There are NO Housing Courts on Cape Cod.
