This summer Jobs with Justice is working to empower a team of people across Massachusetts to organize actions big and small locally in your own community to make our state more welcoming and inclusive to all. Local actions include distributing know your rights materials to faith groups and local businesses by organizing a know your rights community walk, hosting a community meeting in your home or community group to teach your friends and neighbors about state and federal legislation to protect families, organizing a postcard party, or joining a lobbying group at the State House or at your local in-district office to support bills.
To start off the street team this summer we will have a kickoff meeting at the Jobs with Justice office at 375 Centre Street in Jamaica Plain on July 9, from 6:00 to 8. You can join this event in person (or virtually via zoom chat [link]). Jobs with Justice will provide snacks and we'll spend some time discussing pending state bills, and the many ways we can work within in our own communities to protect our neighbors to make our communities more welcoming and safer for noncitizens. Lily Huang (Co-Director of Mass JWJ) will do a brief training on how to organize a know your rights community walk in your neighborhood and we will conclude if there's time to practice in the neighborhood near JwJ.
We hope to see you soon and please RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org
