POSTPONED: Safe Communities Act Hearing

December 2 @ 10:00 am

Save Communities Hearing Postponed

This hearing has been POSTPONED due to a predicted snowstorm

On Monday, December 2, starting at 10 am, the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security will hold a public hearing on the Safe Communities Act, in the Gardner Auditorium of the State House.

We’re holding a media event at 9 am, and then hope to keep Gardner packed all day – which means we need people to come in multiple shifts. Everyone who wishes to testify may do so; the hearing will go on as long as it takes for all to speak. But even if you don’t testify, you can make an impact with your presence.

Please fill out this form to help us plan and organize. If you can’t join us, no form is needed, but we encourage you to submit written testimony.

Things you can do to help:

Call or email your legislators, and urge everyone in your networks to do the same (even if you’ve done it already, a quick extra call always helps; find your legislators here.

• Share at least 3 social-media posts promoting our Phone2Action campaign; you can find shareable slides for Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, and sample posts, in our Toolkit.

• Send a letter to the editor to your local newspaper; we’ve got 3 sample letters you can personalize, or write your own, drawing on our talking points.

But most important… join us on Dec. 2! This is our biggest mobilization to date, and it has to be huge. Immigrants, children of immigrants, friends, neighbors, employers, community advocates – we need you ALL. You can find 8.5×11” flyers and mini-flyers in our Toolkit.
