10/14 - SPANISH DAY OF ACTION: Safe Communities ALLIES Canvass for Immigrants' Rights in Salem (Yes on 1)

Spanish Day of Action - October 14 10:00 am and 1:00 pm - North Shore CDC, 96 Lafayette St. (upstairs) Salem

We will canvass The Point neighborhood (Salem's primarily Latino neighborhood) in two shifts, 10:00 am and 1:00 pm. Our opponents went into this neighborhood to get residents to sign their referendum petition, misleading people that it was "for Sanctuary." We need to combat that.  If you speak Spanish, that is great! Feel free to come even if you don't.

Parking: Street parking should be available in the surrounding blocks. The routes will be walkable. 


Think globally. Act in Salem 

In MA that means following the example of states as different as Calif and Illinois, and passing the Safe Communities Act.

In a dem-controlled Legislature, that ought to be easy, but trust us, it's not. 

Especially with Trump whipping up outrageous and frightening xenophobia and enacting aggressive and oppressive deportation machine -- Legislators are scared. But this is exactly when we need political courage and real policy solutions like the Safe Communities Act. 

Salem has emerged as one of the front lines in this battle. 

State lawmakers are watching the result of Salem's Nov. 7 ballot question that asks: Should Salem remain a welcoming city--commit to anti-xenophobia and keeping local resources local?

Lawmakers are already nervous about passing SCA and if Salem's ballot measure goes down, they will run away from support for SCA. It is CRUCIAL that this ballot measure passes in Salem.

We need EVERYBODY's help. THIS IS WHERE AND HOW WE FIGHT TRUMP. Your efforts go a long, long way in local races. And the effect can have national implications. 

Just like we go to other states and make calls out of state, we must do the same WITHIN MA, because we have so much work to do right here. Work that will protect and improve real people's lives. Let's do this, MA! 

RSVP below and we will coordinate with Salem organizers and endorsing organizations (some of which are listed above) for our Allies Meet Up and after-canvass social! (And help get out the word!)

CAN'T MAKE THIS DATE? Get some friends together and make your own carpool-to-canvass! Go to: progressivemass.com/sca-salemsignup to coordinate with local organizers on other dates
