|ACTION NEEDED NOW!
Got a few minutes to visit the State House?
RISE and others are organizing small delegations of people to visit the state house to thank Senator Rush and to urge our representatives in the House to advocate strongly to have the bill recommended favorably out of committee. These will be quick visits with a few other members of RISE. Showing our faces at the State House is the best way to keep the pressure up! If you have a bit of time to do this, sign up here.
If you can’t attend, consider writing a letter to your State Representative and State Senator urging them to contact the Chairs of the Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee to ask them to give the bill a swift and favorable report before the February 7 report-out deadline. RISE will deliver your letter to our legislators. Send letters to Jaime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join the January 31 Statewide Call-In Day
Join with the Safe Communities Coalition on Jan 31 and call your senator and representative! Find their contact info here. Here’s a script: My name is _______ and I am a constituent. I live in [your neighborhood]. I’m calling because I support the Safe Communities Act and I want to urge [the legislator you’re calling] to call the chairs of the Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee (Senator Moore and Representative Naughton) to ask them to give the bill a swift and favorable report before the February 7 report-out deadline.
(Since most Roslindale Representatives support the bill, we want them to be more active in getting it out of committee. When calling Senator Rush, please thank him for his support!)
We need all available RISERS to make these calls! We also ask you to reach out to friends anywhere in Massachusetts – we need more supporters before Feb 7! Can you reach out to your networks via Facebook, email and personal contacts to ask them to also make a call?
Fired up and want to make more calls? Sign up for phone banking with the ACLU.
