Lobby Day for Single-Payer Bills on Wednesday at 11 am

Join MassCare at the Grand Staircase of the State House at 11AM for a mini-rally to kick things off. Senator Eldridge, lead sponsor of the Senate bill, and other community leaders will speak about the importance of this legislation. 

After we rally, we’ll break into small groups to visit our legislators and ask them to sponsor the bills. 

Don’t worry if you’ve never lobbied before – we’ll send you with experienced activists who will show you the ropes. We’re also providing everyone with packets to hand over to your legislators, which will include a fact sheet on the bill, media about the ballot question win, and where to find more resources on single payer. 

See you at 11AM on January 23rd!
