New Bedford - Invest in Our Recovery!
Start: Wednesday, July 22, 2020• 5:00 PM
Join us for this local launch of the statewide "Invest in Our Recovery" campaign led by Raise Up Massachusetts and powered by partner organizations across the Commonwealth. From Springfield to Lynn and Worcester to Revere, we're bringing this message to every corner of the state and we'll be calling on every elected official from your local city councilors to Governor Baker himself.

To fight COVID-19, relieve the economic damage it is causing for workers, families, and businesses, and tackle racial inequalities, we need a government response that rises to the needs of our communities, which are greater than ever. Massachusetts can raise significant new revenue from profitable corporations and their shareholders this year, avoid destructive budget cuts, and instead, invest in our recovery!
Lawmakers have a choice: we can let deep budget cuts drive us deeper into a recession that deepens racial and economic inequities, or we can invest in public services that improve public health, grow our economy, and reduce racial inequality. We need Emergency Paid Sick Time to protect the health and safety of workers. Healthcare, transportation, education, safety net programs, and other critical areas of the state budget need more support now, not less.
