Mass NOW Chapter Meeting: Alternatives to Police Violence
November 17, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Mass NOW members, join our monthly chapter meetings to hear updates on our legislative agenda and participate in consciousness raisings with our diverse, multi-generational feminist community. Over dessert and wine, we strengthen our personal narratives and educate our communities about our priority issue areas. No expertise necessary!
This month we’ll be talking about An Act to create alternatives for community emergency services (ACES) SB1552/HB2519 Sponsored by Sen. Chang-Diaz and Rep. Sabadosa. The ACES Act would create a new Alternatives for Community Emergency Services Grant Program through the Executive Office of Health and Human Services. This would increase the availability of non-law-enforcement, unarmed community-based emergency response options for calls to 911 in order to help individuals in need, avoid escalation of a crisis situation, and save lives.
