How can you help?


Here's how YOU can help GET BIG MONEY OUT!

There is always some way to help! In the spring, we are usually focused on filing and advocating for and educating about Legislative Bills at the Statehouse and around the state with Legislators and Constituents. In the summer, we start organizing to petition in the fall. Please contact us to see what we are doing this month.

Here are our TALKING POINTS (good stuff to know when you're talking about PassMass)


Here are some specific ways to help:


  • PETITIONING (in the fall)! Gathering signatures is how we can get this done ourselves! And even if we don't get enough signatures to get the question on the ballot, by gathering signatures, we pressure the Legislature to ACT!

  • ASK YOUR STATE REP (all year around) to "endorse" and/or support the PassMassAmendment Bills and/or COME TO THE STATE HOUSE to help us spread the word!

  • GET US ON THE AGENDA of YOUR COMMUNITY GROUP, and let us know when!

  • ASK YOUR CIVIC GROUP (all year around) to help! Are you part of the UU Church? local Democratic Town Committee? League of Women Voters? These groups want to help, but we need YOU to stand up and ask them to put PassMassAmendment on the agenda. Leaders need to know how many people care about an issue before they will put a priority on it. Please LET THEM KNOW you care about using the STATE Constitution to get BIG MONEY OUT!

  • ORGANIZE IN YOUR REGION. We need help organizing EACH TOWN around the state. Can you be a point of contact in your town? Can you gather up a few people to help? Can you get us on the agenda of your local civic group? Host a meeting? Be a "Town Coordinator"? If so, please let us know!

  • GATHER SIGNATURES: We hope you will help gather signatures this next year. We can only gather signatures IN THE FALL. So please plan to carve out some time to help. As a reminder, this is a REAL BINDING petition folks!...NOT an online advocacy petition campaign! ONLY signatures of REGISTERED VOTERS on the OFFICIAL PETITION "count".

WITH YOUR HELP, we'll get BIG MONEY OUT of politics!
We are building a statewide NETWORK OF PETITIONERS, to defend democracy from destruction by monied interests.
Sign up here to help!

JOIN the "BATTLE OF OUR AGE" and commit a few hours of time over the next few weeks to do YOUR SHARE in this "last stand" for Democracy!

My goodness, let us count the ways!
