INDIGENOUS PEOPLES DAY

Go to the Action Network link and you will find the text of the MA Indigenous Peoples Day bill, an automated letter that you can send to legislators, and also information about how to send your own letter if you do not want to use the automated Action Network letter. Please plan to modify the Action Network letter to tell the legislators why this bill is so important to you — personalization helps a lot! Sending this will only take a few minutes of your time.

About

We are working to support legislation currently before the Massachusetts State Legislature that will benefit Indigenous Peoples.

Our current Agenda includes five bills in the 2021-2022 session that reflect some of the key concerns within Massachusetts. 

From time to time, we will also ask supporters to lend a hand with other legislation in the region and nationally.

These are the bills we are supporting in the 2021-2022 MA legislative session

Replace Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples Day to celebrate Indigenous resilience and survival. The change acknowledges the true histories of colonialism, genocide and racism that Native peoples have experienced and continue to face.
