Create Safe and Supportive Schools Programs

The Senate Ways and Means Budget eliminates funding to continue the work of implementing safe and supportive schools programs in 17 school districts across the Commonwealth.

Senator Sal DiDomenico is filing a budget amendment to restore and increase funding to $350,000.
Call or e-mail your state Senator to ask that he or she co-sponsor Senator Sal DiDomenico amendment to the Safe and Supportive Schools Grant Program line item (7061-9612) to restore and increase funding.

Support Civil Legal Aid

Legal services programs across the state desperately need funding to help low-income people access critical legal advice and representation.

Call or e-mail your state Senator, asking him or her to sign on to Senator William Brownsberger's amendment to the Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation (MLAC) line item (0321-1600) increasing the civil legal aid appropriation.
