To Massachusetts Legislators:

Massachusetts passage of the SAFE COMMUNITIES ACT is of the greatest moral imperative. We must assert our principles of equality and justice for all, and our deeply held value of being a SAFE haven for immigrants, including refugees from oppression.

That we have not passed such legislation prior to this moment is a failure of our collective morality. We must correct this now. We must gird ourselves against the coming economic, social, climate, and structural aggressions of President Trump’s immoral agenda.

Please support a bold 2017-18 Progressive Agenda, including the Safe Communities Act, by co-sponsoring and vigorously fighting for these bills and their objectives. (further info on these bills at ProgressiveMass.com/legislativeagenda)

America stands for liberty and justice for all, right, then we must stop the barriers and injustices that stand in the way of our pledge of allegiance to the flag of the United states of America. We are still America aren’t we. You are our leaders, please insure this.

It is urgent to pass this legislation. Trump is already mobilizing to press state and local police forces into service to enforce his agendas. We can be sure that there will be further illegal executive orders targeting immigrants and Muslims. Please set up these sound firewalls before it is too late.
