Turn your Truth into Testimony
TONIGHT at 6:30PM with Beacon Bloc
Join Mass NOW and Beacon Bloc for a workshop on how to turn your truth into testimony! No experience is necessary for this interactive workshop where State House staffers will walk you through an overview of how a bill becomes a law, and how we can turn our lived experience into impactful testimony and advance our feminist agenda.
The I AM bill has been assigned to the Joint Committee on Public Health and has been assigned a hearing date of Monday, June 7th! Use the I AM bill Advocacy Toolkit to submit your testimony in support and join our Watch Party June 7th to watch the hearing live stream and chat with activists in support of both the I AM bill and Out-of-Hospital Birth Access and Safety Act (HD.3684/SD.2266) with the Bay State Birth Coalition.
Mayoral Candidate Forum
Monday, June 7th 7:00-8:00PM
Yesterday we kicked off Pride month with an exciting announcement: We’re co-hosting a Boston Mayoral Candidate Fourm alongside Trans Resistance, the Transgender Emergency Fund, the Massachusetts Trans Political Coalition, Boston Dyke March & Pride 4 the People!
The forum is an opportunity to hear from candidates their positions on policies and issues facing the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC community.
We are holding this forum at the same time as Boston Pride’s forum for the same reason we’re holding the Trans Resistance March on the same day as Boston Pride – to boycott Boston Pride until they transition leadership and initiate a process for bylaw revisions that enact a democratic governance structure.
Read all about how LGBTQ activists upstage mayoral forum by Boston Pride by Stephanie Ebbertt in the Boston Globe.
