Judiciary Committee Members - Protect women, children, the LGBTQ+ community - Support a Prison Moratorium
Three pieces of legislation currently being considered by the legislature's Joint Committee on the Judiciary could have important positive benefits for members of the LGBTQ+ community, children and women. A fourth could led to a prison construction moratorium and a reimagining of "Justice as Healing" and restitution:
- H.1470 & S.2956 An Act protecting LGBTQ victims
- H.1709 & S.937 - An Act to end child marriage in Massachusetts
- H.1800 & S.992 - An Act to stop profiling transgender people and low-income women
- H.1905 & S.2030 - An Act establishing a jail and prison construction moratorium
We are urging the members of the committee to take action now by completing their work on these four bills and reporting them out FAVORABLY to the full legislature for consideration. Please add your voice to this effort by using ORMA's letter writing tool on the right.
