Newton Highlands and Auburndale This Weekend

This week the RaiseUp MA campaign announced that we have collected over 150,000 signatures on our petitions!!!!  That is awesome, but we have to hang in there and keep going.

This Saturday, October 26 from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm, we will be in Newton Highlands.  This should be a lot of fun.  We really haven’t hit the Highlands yet and we’re hoping lots of folks will be out on Lincoln St.  Meet us by Bread and Chocolate on the corner of Lincoln St and Hartford.

On Sunday, October 27 from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm, we will go back to Auburndale.  We will meet by the Shaw’s Supermarket at 2040 Commonwealth Ave.

To RSVP or if you would like to take petitions to your own weekend events, email us at or call us at 617-340-9527.  You can also find us at our Progressive Newton page on Facebook, and follow us @ProgressiveNewt on twitter.

After a Spectacular Weekend, We're Ready for the Last Month

We had a wonderful weekend of signature gathering in gorgeous fall weather.  We went to Auburndale for the first time Saturday morning and on Sunday to the Newton Harvest Fair, where we got signatures from over 39 towns and cities in MA!!  By the end of the weekend 680 voters had signed to RaiseUp MA!!!

The RaiseUp campaign has until November 20th to collect signatures to put the minimum wage and earned sick-time leave initiatives on the ballot.  And we need your help!!!

This week we are at the Farmer’s Market at Cold Spring Park today, and then we will hit the busy early morning rush on Thursday from 7:00 – 8:30 am at the Watertown Bus Terminal at for the #59 and #71 buses.  You can meet us there.

This coming weekend, we will go back to Auburndale, Newtonville and Newton Highlands.  If you are available to go out for a couple of hours on Saturday or Sunday, email us at
