Day on the Hill: Act for the Future

Thank you to everyone who joined us for a successful Day on the Hill lobby day,  Act for the Future, on Wednesday, October 11.

Many thanks to Senate Majority Leader Cindy Creem for serving as our keynote speaker. Senator Creem is the lead sponsor of our top priority elections and voting bill, the ACCESS Act. Special thanks to Rashelle Centeio from Senator Liz Miranda’s office for briefing us on S.1415, An Act relative to birthing justice.

League members enjoyed productive meetings with their legislators to ask for support for bills in four priority areas:

  • Elections and Voting: S.410, An Act making voting administrative changes to create equitable systemic solutions (ACCESS Act) 
    • H.688, An Act establishing same day registration of voters
    • H.707, An Act decoupling the municipal census from voter registration 
    • H.701, An Act enforcing accessibility for voters with disabilities 
    • H.656, An Act providing uniform mail voting forms 
  • Maternal Health: S.1415, An Act relative to birthing justice
  • Firearms: (H4135, An Act modernizing firearm laws, Senate bill to be filed)
  • PFAS (forever chemicals): H.2197 /S.1356, An Act to protect Massachusetts public health from PFAS

ICYMI: There is still time to contact your legislators in support of our priority legislation. View the information packet for Day on the Hill here. If you reference the firearms legislation, the House has now passed a bill, so you just need to urge your Senator to support a strong firearms bill this session.

See you at our next Day on the Hill in October 2025.
