Farmworker’s Lobby Day

Please show your support for farm workers across Massachusetts by attending Farmworkers’ Lobby Day at the State House on April 16 from 11 am to 2 pm, hosted by our partners at the Fairness for Farmworkers  (FFW) Coalition, when we will advocate for H.2812/S.1837,  An Act Establishing Fairness for Agricultural Laborers.

The bills are currently with the Joint Committee on Revenue and Regulation and must be reported out of committee by April 30th. Learn more about the bills in the attached fact sheet as well as within this summary and LWVMA testimony.

Please consider participating in Farmworkers’ Lobby  Day on April 16th and join your colleagues in encouraging your legislators to give the bills a favorable report. If you plan to attend, please send your name and zip code to specialists@lwvma.org and take part in one of the Zoom orientation sessions, either at 12 pm or 5 pm on Tuesday, April 9th.  You will receive the Zoom link to the orientation and the FFW Coalition will schedule a meeting for you with your legislators.
