The legislature needs to hear from us, in every corner of the Commonwealth, that it’s time to pass Paid Family and Medical Leave and a $15 Minimum Wage. Now that we’ve collected enough signatures to put both of these questions on the ballot, our message to the legislature is clear: let’s do this.

To make our message heard, we’re inviting legislators from our region to join us to hear directly from their constituents on why these issues matter. Will you join us for a legislative forum to help make this ask?

Join us on TuesdayMarch 20th at 6 PM at St. Paul’s Cathedral on 138 Tremont St. in Boston to ask our legislators to prioritize and pass comprehensive Paid Family and Medical Leave and a $15 Minimum Wage for all workers in Massachusetts.

We will be rallying with ally organizations who are supportive of Raise Up Massachusetts’ campaigns: SEIU 32BJ, Jewish Alliance for Law and Social Action, Jewish Labor Committee, the Boston Labor Guild, Mass. Jobs with Justice, SEIU 509, and many more. Together, with hundreds of campaign supporters, it will be impossible to ignore our call to action. For years, workers and families across Massachusetts have been demanding a living wage and paid leave to care for those they love without risking job loss or financial ruin. With your help, we are going to make 2018 the year that these campaigns are realized for all workers.

Don’t forget to RSVP Here!  Thank you for your continued support of our issues – we’ll see you at the forum!

Onward,

Massachusetts Interfaith Worker Justice
