This is a virtual event
We’re Bringing The Invest in Our Recovery Campaign to Your Community!
The Raise Up Massachusetts coalition is made up of local and statewide partner organizations but we’re powered by activists like you. Attend this community briefing as we deliver testimonials from working people directly to your state lawmakers and stand in solidarity with us as we ask them directly where they stand on the Invest in Our Recovery campaign and what they’ll do to ensure the MA Legislature passes a just recovery for working people.
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.
From healthcare and transportation, to education and housing assistance, our state and local budgets are filled with critical programs to the well being of our communities. These programs and our communities need more support now, not less. The government response must rise to the needs of our communities. Needs, which have never been higher.
