Progressive Mass. Kickoff Meeting Sunday, October 2nd, 2 to 6 pm

Progressive Mass. Kickoff Meeting

Frustrated that progressive state legislation - like universal health care, fair taxation, and the bottle bill - never sees the light of day?
Outraged that Scott Brown represents Massachusetts in the US Senate and want to help replace him with a strong progressive voice?
Despairing that your individual efforts, or even the efforts of your local activist group, dont carry enough clout to have a statewide impact?
Want to be part of a unified, statewide, grassroots movement that can make Massachusetts a model of progressive policy?

....Then come to the first organizational meeting of Progressive Mass!

When: Sunday, October 2nd, 2 to 6 pm

Where: Lasell College, Newton, MA

(near Mass Pike, Rt. 128, and 8 min. walk from the Green Line)

Progressive Mass. is a new, statewide, diverse organization built from the ground up by organizers and activists like you.

As we launch on October 2, we will: take positions on public policies through a democratic process; organize members to directly contact elected officials to support these policies; and help elect and support progressive candidates for public office.

We believe that to create meaningful changes in public policy, progressives in every corner of the state must work together to hold elected officials accountable to progressive values and to elect progressive candidates.

Progressive Mass. will make that vision a reality with effective, statewide organizing. We are open to anyone in Massachusetts who wants to see their progressive values turned into action, and will work closely with existing progressive organizations to insure the success of our efforts.

Whether you are a Democratic activist, a member of a labor union or grassroots organization, a lone progressive in your community, or a talented volunteer campaigner for progressive candidates, Progressive Mass. is looking to use your insights, talents, opinions, hard work, anger, frustration, hope, idealism, and determination to make Massachusetts stand up for the kind of progressive policies that can make us proud to be Massachusetts residents.

To reserve your place at the meeting/RSVP, register above via Eventbrite.
