General Membership Meeting
Berkshire County DA Andrea Harrington will speak about her Blueprint for Safety and Justice.
Raise Up MA will join us to speak about the Fair Share Amendment ballot measure: a proposal to amend the Massachusetts Constitution, creating an additional tax of four percentage points on the portion of a person’s annual income above $1 million. The new revenue, approximately $2 billion a year, would be spent on “quality public education and affordable public colleges and universities, and for the repair and maintenance of roads, bridges and public transportation.” To ensure that the amendment continues to apply only to the highest income taxpayers, who have the ability to pay more, the $1 million threshold would be adjusted each year to reflect cost-of-living increases.”
Massachusetts Is Not For Sale will join us to speak about their opposition to Massachusetts HB 1234 the Gig Bill and the campaign by Big Gig employers (Uber, Lyft, DoorDash, etc.) to rewrite long-standing Massachusetts law to exclude hundreds of thousands of workers—disproportionately Black, brown, and immigrant workers—from fundamental rights and protections.
