Contact Safe Communities co-sponsors to counter anti-immigrant campaign!
December 22, 2017
The Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance has been mounting a rolling attack on the 95 co-sponsors of the Safe Communities Act. We need an immediate response to show support for those legislators who are supporting one of JDI's top priority bills.
The Alliance’s anti-immigrant postcard campaign is sowing fear about the bill, using false and misleading information disseminated by the Federation of American Immigration Reform (FAIR), which the Southern Poverty Law Center has identified as a white supremacist hate group.
The postcards are generating hundreds of calls to cosponsors from angry voters who misunderstand and oppose the bill. And legislators are getting worried.
Now these legislators need to hear from supporters. We need to thank them for their commitment to the Safe Communities Act and to immigrant state residents – and assure them of our support!
If you want to send an email, you can use this simple tool created by our partners at the Safe Communities Coalition; if you enter your address and ZIP code, it will direct you to your legislators, and automatically tailor the message for each of them, depending on whether they co-sponsored the SCA. (You can customize the email as you wish.)
If you want to call (this makes the biggest and most immediate impact!), find the list of co-sponsors here, and find your legislators and their contact information here, if you don’t already have them.
Please also share this action with your networks!
