The ballot initiative that we choose each year involves collecting signatures (petitioning) to get our questions on the ballot.

  • Petitioning is:

    • citizen action to make real change!

    • the act of gathering signatures from voters.

    • how we get ballot questions to the voters.


  • Our aim is to use the ballot to make law and to amend the state constitution.

  • Unlike many advocacy groups, our ballot initiatives use the state's legally binding petition process, which gathers signatures only from registered voters.

  • In 2017, we will petition to make law in order to reduce the amount of dark money in Massachusetts elections.
