April 2020 Update
While many bills including our own have been stalled at the MA legislature due to the coronavirus pandemic, members of the MA Indigenous Agenda wrote to Massachusetts legislators in early April to flag some Indigenous-specific issues related to the COVID-19 crisis. We are continuing to follow up with state legislators and the MA congressional delegation and press for these concerns to be addressed in public health and pandemic legislation.
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 2019-2021 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 2019-2020 MA legislative session
- Write to the Committee chairs and your district’s legislators and ask them to support all 5 bills.
- Sign up for our mailing list so that you can receive updates.
- Endorse our efforts. You can endorse as an individual with your organization listed for identification purposes, or get your organization to endorse directly.
