As a partner in the Statewide Task Force on Coronavirus and Equity, the Network has joined with dozens of others and signed on to the Invest in Our Recovery Letter, led by the Raise Up MA Coalition. Will your organization please sign as well?
The Task Force offers this additional information below on why starting NOW with this letter is crucial to avoiding massive cuts to come – let’s do this together!
As we face a potential $8 BILLION budget shortfall, the Task Force is bringing us together to prevent further harm to communities already suffering from the health and economic impacts of COVID-19 – impacts we know are driven by institutional racism and economic injustice.
Please sign your organization onto the Invest in Our Recovery Organizational Sign-on Letter to call on Massachusetts state legislators to raise significant new revenue from profitable corporations and their shareholders before making any further state budget cuts.
An initial list of supporters will be released on Labor Day, so if you can, please sign on in advance of this coming Monday September 7th. If you need more time to bring this to the proper committee in your organization, we ask that you please start that process – as your support will be crucial over the course of this campaign.
We need YOU in this fight!
