MA Sanctuary Preparations for January
Dec 8, 2016 — It's coming up on January. A lot is going to happen very quickly; we don't really know what the President-elect is going to do, and we need to get the framework in place to protect our friends and neighbors in Massachusetts. There is no time to wait and see, as Governor Baker as suggested. The future depends on all of us standing up for what's right and not equivocating in the face of hatred.
The MA Legislature will be reconvening in January and bringing up S. 1258. Early January is the crucial time to be calling your local legislators (you can find them here: https://malegislature.gov/Search/FindMyLegislator) and urging them to co-sponsor the bill. We particularly need support from outside the Boston area, so, as always, share this with your friends and family in Western and Southern Mass.
Here is a call script I have written to help people call their legislators: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1XiBlKST013lc6-0xcf-OLVUE-Rl1umeN-0cURHSgcZs/edit?usp=sharing
I have added a section for calling Governor Charlie Baker directly, which I suggest doing.
