DC ACTION

HELP JON OSSOFF! Our friends at the DCCC are arranging a bus June 15-21 from the DC area to get out the vote in Georgia for Jon Ossoff. Hotels, housing and meals will be provided, and you can help change history. If you want to be involved, please write us at twohoursaweek@gmail.com and we'll put you in touch.

NOT IN DC? The campaign will pay to rent a 9-11 passenger van (and gas costs) if you know people interested in coming from other locations!

MA ACTION

Support the Safe Communities Act

Help support a bill in the Massachusetts state legislature (S1305, H3269) that would protect the civil rights of all residents and push back against Trump's aggressive anti-immigrant agenda. The Safe Communities Act(SCA) ensures state, local, and campus police don’t participate in immigration enforcement activities, local officers aren’t deputized as immigration agents in collaboration with Homeland Security, no state support for a Muslim registry, and basic Due Process Rights for people detained in state and local facilities for civil violations. This bill is coming before committee on June 9 so now's the perfect time to call!

  1. Sign the MoveOn.org petition

  2. Figure out if your State Senator or Representative has co-sponsored the SCA. If they ARE a co-sponsor, ask them to 1) submit testimony to the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security in support of the SCA and 2) tell Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo that the SCA is important to their constituents. If they ARE NOT a co-sponsor, then ask them to consider it.

  3. Show up on Beacon Hill for the hearing on June 9. Facebook event here.
