The Mass Power Foward Coalition and the Safe Communities Immigrant Rights Coaltion are working together to demand action before the end of the legislative session on July 31. Here’s what’s coming up this week:
We are planning a series of vigils next week outside the offices of the conference committee members who are failing to act on climate and immigration:
- Monday July 23 from 12-1pm
- Tuesday July 24 from 11-12pm (there will also be an Immigrant Rights vigil from 12-1:30)
- Wednesday July 25 from 12-1pm
- Thursday from 12-5pm (culminating in a HUGE mobilization)
Click here to fill out your availability for vigil spots. And feel free to sign up for more than one if you can!
P.S. Continue to up the pressure on social media! Be sure to tag Speaker De Leo, Rep. Jeffrey Sanchez, and Rep. Tom Golden on social media with the hashtag #WhyWeWontRest. Add pictures of your loved ones, and show them we won’t stop until we have change.

Join us to lament our legislators’ lack of action and moral courage in failing to protect immigrant families in MA. We will observe a moment of silence, mourning for the lack of leadership and compassion towards other human beings. We will be inspired by our faith leaders and will deliver black ribbons to our legislators to decry their lack of support and compassion.
