Support the Safe Communities Act!
Support Massachusetts' Safe Communities Act, which would protect the civil rights of all state residents by making sure our tax dollars are not used to help the Trump administration deport immigrant families or create a Muslim registry.
Why is this important?
After the hateful rhetoric of the last election season and dangerous actions of the new presidential administration, many undocumented families in Massachusetts now live in heightened fear of deportation and separation. Muslims are also an arbitrary target through a proposed "registry". The Safe Communities Act would address both of these issues and push back at the regressive policies being imposed across the nation.
Massachusetts leadership has helped shape the nation’s consciousness on civil rights. Today, we need to see that kind of courage from our state legislators on behalf of immigrants and Muslims in our communities.
