7/12/2022 - Some good news AND YOUR HELP NEEDED about Indigenous Peoples Day in Massachusetts!

Our statewide Indigenous Peoples Day bills were just favorably voted out of the MA Joint Committee on State Admin. & Regulatory Oversight. Thank you for your support in making that happen!

While that is a great first step, we need your help immediately to try to get this legislation passed before the end of July, when the MA legislative session ends for the year.

We have created an automated online email here that will send a message to legislators that you want them to bring this legislation out for a favorable vote so that Massachusetts will officially celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day instead of Columbus Day. You can use the language that is in the automated email or write your own message – but please do this today and share with your networks!

Ask your legislators and leadership to pass the Indigenous Peoples Day Bills!
