Raise Up Massachusetts
Our Campaign to Pass the Fair Share Amendment is Underway Right Now!
The Fair Share Amendment would amend the Massachusetts Constitution, creating an additional tax of four percentage points on the portion of a person’s annual income above $1 million. The new revenue would be spent on quality public education and affordable public colleges and universities, and for the repair and maintenance of roads, bridges and public transportation. To ensure that this amendment continues to apply only to the highest income taxpayers, who have the ability to pay more, the $1 million threshold would be adjusted each year to reflect cost-of-living increases.
The Fair Share Amendment favorably passed its SECOND Constitutional Convention by a vote of 159 to 41 from
the MA Legislature! This vote placed the Fair Share Amendment on the
November 2022 ballot and officially launched our campaign. Long before
the vote, supporters of the Fair Share Amendment from all corners of the
commonwealth have been busy. We have Regional Teams doing local organizing
work all across our
commonwealth, have hosted multiple local launches of the Fair Share Amendment
campaign in each of those regions, facilitated popular education
workshops to teach folks about the Fair Share Amendment, and begun collecting thousands of Fair Share voter pledges from MA voters.
