All are welcome to participate, and we will provide an overview of the project to everyone who wasn’t able to make one of the Community Circles. Food, interpreters, and child care will be provided.

Support a Shared Leadership Model

Eileen Donoghue: 617-722-1630

Stanley Rosenberg’s leadership style of “shared leadership”—with its emphasis on engaging committee chairs and other Senate members in setting the body’s agenda—has helped the Senate produce stronger legislation than it might have in a top-down environment (according to the Boston Herald). We need Eileen Donoghue to pledge to continue that style of leadership, especially if she pursues the Senate Presidency.

Sample Script: “Hello, my name is _____ from _____, Massachusetts. Please pledge support for Stanley Rosenberg’s shared leadership style of engaging committee chairs and other Senate members in setting the body’s agenda. Thank you!”

Protect Dreamers!

Edward Markey: 617-565-8519
Niki Tsongas: 978-459-0101

On Sept. 5, Trump announced that he was terminating the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. This Obama-era program provides relief from deportation for an estimated 800,000 young immigrants. Because Trump terminated DACA, over 10,000 Dreamers are estimated to have already lost their protections, and nearly 1,000 more will lose DACA each week and become vulnerable to Trump’s deportation force. Currently, Senator Elizabeth Warren is our only member of Congress who has pledged to require that the spending bill includes protections for DACA recipients.

Sample Script: “Hello, my name is _____, from ______, Massachusetts. Please make a public commitment to stand with Dreamers. 27 members of the House and 5 Senators have already taken the Dreamer Pledge, and an additional 34 Republican Members of Congress signed a letter saying that “we must pass legislation that protects DACA recipients from deportation” by the end of this year. Thank you!”
