First Weekend of the Second Round of Signature Collection

Wow. What an incredible first weekend of signature collection.  We are well on our way to win a higher minimum wage and earned sick leave for all workers in Massachusetts.


On Wednesday, the petitions were released from the Secretary of State. We were waiting at the door to get them as soon as they opened. The petitions were sent straight to the printer to make thousands of copies to send out all over the state. Then on Friday, we distributed petitions to faith, labor, and community groups all over the state for the first weekend of signature collection.


We started it off strong with signature collection at UMass Commencement in the rain, collecting hundreds of signatures from over 50 of the351 cities and the Commonwealth with UFCW, Jobs with Justice, and new Progressive Mass staff Johannes Raatz. 


Then, other activists collected signatures at the PDA 10th Anniversary conference on Friday night and Saturday.

 Malden activists held an incredible kick-off, thanks to the tireless organizer Amanda Smith.


Newton activists collected petitions signatures in Newton Centre, thanks to Susan Davidoff.
