Make one phone call to protect immigrants in Massachusetts (S.1305, H.3269) The Safe Communities Act (S.1305, H.3269) would protect all Massachusetts residents by ensuring that state resources are not used to enforce federal immigration law. The bill is currently awaiting action by the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security, but it won’t move forward without a lot of public pressure. Urge your lawmakers to sign onto a letter asking the Committee Chairs to advance the Safe Communities Act today! Call your state senator and demand the repeal of mandatory minimum sentencing for drug offenses (S.819) One-size-fits-all mandatory minimum sentences are a plague on our system of justice. They harm thousands of people’s lives. Tell your state senator to support S.819 and to prioritize ending mandatory minimum sentencing as a key part of criminal justice reform in Massachusetts. Tell your legislators to reject Reefer Madness In November, Massachusetts voters legalized the use of marijuana by adults and rejected the failed war on drugs. Now, our state legislators want to fast-track regressive changes to the new law. We can’t let them take Massachusetts backwards. Tell your legislators to reject Reefer Madness and support marijuana policy guided by science, liberty and equity. Photo by Bryan MacCormack.
