Why wait until Patriots Day? The starting gun has been fired in our marathon for sentencing justice, and we’ll be racing towards victory for the rest of this legislative session. But don’t just stand there on the sidelines! Lace up your running shoes and join us as we work for passage of FAMM’s bills. Click here to send a message to your state representative.
FAMM’s bills. FAMM’s two bills now have official bill numbers and have been assigned to the Judiciary Committee.
A great warm up! Thank you, Massachusetts FAMM members, for asking your legislators to co-sponsor our bills. As a result of your good work, a diverse group of representatives from around the state signed on to our bills. They are listed in the bill summaries. And for those reps who didn’t co-sponsor our bills, you started a conversation about the need for reform.
Keeping a steady pace. With today’s message to your state representative, we are just heading out from Hopkinton. We’ve got a long way to go before we get to the finish line and we will need your help every step of the way. Consider rounding up some running buddies — family or friends who share your commitment to justice. You can keep each other motivated in the months ahead!
