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)

Under the current circumstances, it’s essential for our state to move forward and develop model legislation and model programs that they nation can follow when it comes to its senses, and that will keep Massachusetts residents safe, secure, and free in the interim.

I will be watching whether Rep. Garlick and Senator Mike Rush co-sponsor the Safe Communities act


I’m devastated that we haven’t ALREADY passed “Sanctuary” or “Trust” act. It’s time to play catch up — and then start pushing FORWARD on policies affecting

- Immigration

- Poverty

- Inequality

- Healthcare as right

- Infrastructure

- Criminal Justice reform

- reproductive rights….
