Action Alert: Ask your Rep. & Senator to co-sponsor health equity legislation

Thank you to everyone who reached out to your Senator and Representative last month! We had great success during the cosponsorship drive–showing strong support from the legislature for our priority bills.

Now is a critical time to take action for health equity in the Commonwealth. It is the start of a new legislative session and by January 18, 2019, Massachusetts legislators filed more than 5,000 new bills that will be considered over the next two years.

Please take a few minutes this week to reach out to your Representative and Senator by phone, email, or in person and ask them to co-sponsor these five bills that will improve public health in your community.
