Three years ago we kicked off Progressive Massachusetts with the idea that progressives working together across the Commonwealth on a member-driven agenda could become a powerful grassroots influence on Beacon Hill. Every day we move closer to that goal.
Help us celebrate our growing successes by joining us on Jan. 23 -- and renew your membership and commitment to Progressive Mass at the same time!
"Member-driven" must also mean "member-financed." Your commitment is crucial to our work together. Please make your contribution for 2016 now, so we have the resources to keep fighting!
Your 2016 membership also comes with a ticket to ourthe Jan. 23 Winter Fundraiser, where we will hear from legislators and allies about the challenges ahead for our key legislative priorities.
This was Progressive Massachusetts’s biggest year yet, locally and statewide.
Before we dive into 2016, I want to recognize some of the excellent work by our members and chapters:
- Members across the state gathered 10,000 signatures and with the Raise Up Massachusetts coalition, and I'm happy to report -- we have successfully put a constitutional amendment on the ballot, which will raise much needed revenue for education and transportation.
Progressive Watertown members are leading a statewide effort to reduce gun deaths, asking Attorney General Healey to require smart locks on all guns -- you can help by signing/sharing their petition
- The Jamaica Plain Progressives endorsed three winning candidates for a Boston city council that will have a historic number of women of color when they are sworn in in January.
- Progressive Newton led a winning campaign for affordable housing in Newton that will result in 23 desperately needed affordable units.
- Progressive WRox/Roz hosted a community forumattended by over 100 people with all of the candidates for Boston City Council.
There is still so much more to be done, and you are critical to our success.
Check out our legislative agenda for a full rundown of everything we need to accomplish in 2016 to build a more progressive Massachusetts.
I can't wait to speak about it in person with you at our Jan. 23 celebration!
