Where:

Massachusetts State House, Grand Stair Case, 2nd Floor

Join our community partner, the Raise Up Massachusetts (RUM) coalition, to rally and lobby for Paid Family and Medical Leave and a $15 Minimum Wage at the Massachusetts State House! This event will represent the culmination of a multi-year campaign, which was successful in collecting over 272,000 signatures, orchestrating seven legislative forums with over 2,000 attendees, and a statewide phone outreach that talked to over 100,000 people.

The event will be attended by community, faith, and labor leaders from across the State, as well as activists like you who support a higher minimum wage and paid leave. RUM wants to make sure that folks from across the Commonwealth can attend this historic day - that’s why they are running buses from all parts of Massachusetts to bring the people to the halls of the State House. Sign up for the bus program here!

You can RSVP and learn more about the event here. If you are unable to make it to the event but still want to help pass these policies, sign up to join RUM's phone program or consider donating to help us move our campaigns forward.
