Thank Legislators for Supporting Divestment!

Fifty state senators and representatives endorsed state divestment this year, thanks to tireless grassroots organizing all over Massachusetts! With the next legislative session right around the corner, this is a great moment to thank these legislators for their leadership. Can you send your local representative or state senator a thank you card? If they endorsed state divestment, thank them for their support; if they haven’t endorsed divestment yet, thank them for engaging with us on the issue and remind them that you look forward to their support next year. Not sure who your legislators are or how to contact them? Find out here! Not sure if your local legislator endorsed divestment? You can see the list here. If you have questions or need further guidance, contact Eli Gerzon,eli@betterfutureproject.org, or Darcy DuMont,dumont140@yahoo.com
