The COVID-19 crisis has starkly shown the impact of denying basic protections to tens of thousands of Mass. residents. It’s simply not acceptable for anyone to have to fear that if they seek help because they’re sick or in danger, their family might be torn apart. We need to right that wrong; justice can’t wait any longer.
The Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security has set a deadline of July 15 to decide whether to advance the Safe Communities Act (S.1401 and H.3573) this session. Legislators are rightfully focused on the COVID-19 response right now, but they need to hear from you ASAP that this bill, too, is an urgent priority.
Passing the SCA will say loud and clear that in Massachusetts, everyone can seek help, protections and treatment without fear of deportation.
Use our form to email legislators right away. If you have 3 more minutes, call them too (find their numbers here). They need to hear from us time and again, so let’s keep up the pressure!
