Don't miss Progressive Mass's Lobby Day, Wednesday, May 3rd - lobbying training/issues presentations at 9am / Lobby visits thru the morning/early afternoon
- Hear from progressive state legislators on the bills that advance the cause!
- Learn the important issues and the latest updates on our legislative agenda!
- Learn, practice, and share ‘how to lobby effectively’ wisdom!
- Build progressive alliances with new friends from across the state!
When we let legislators know why these bills are important to us, it makes an impact (and especially at the state level).
States are where national legislation gets tried out. Let’s make sure it’s progressive. In these times, we can’t just rest on a status quo. We need to aggressively fight for a progressive future!
FIRST TIME LOBBYING?
Don't worry--our organizers will help walk you thru the steps, and work with you ahead of time to put things in place for a most successful lobby day!

Last month we cast the net WIDE (16 super duper co-hosts). This month we're focusing like a laser on a single issue area: Economic Justice. Eric Bauer from Western Mass. Jobs with Justice will present the Raise Up Massachusetts, and Nathan Proctor will present Massachusetts Fair Share's tax justice campaign. Breakouts will focus on awesome campaign tactics--house parties, hub dialing events, legislator meetings, and more. Resist.
Join the Cambridge-Somerville team on May 6th in taking part in Progress as Resistance, a statewide organizing conference to move forward a progressive agenda in Massachusetts! Come together with members of the Raise Up Massachusetts coalition and activists from across the Commonwealth as we use resistance to make progress on economic, racial, and immigrant justice at home. This event will feature a briefing on how activists can engage in the Raise Up campaigns and other allied progressive issues against the Trump agenda, including campaigns for a $15 Minimum Wage, Paid Family and Medical Leave, the Fair Share Amendment, labor rights, ending mass incarceration, jobs not jails, protecting public education, immigrant rights, and safe communities. Don't miss this event, sign up to join us today!
