Coming to the Rally? Let your legislators know!

Posted by: Christine Batista

In just two weeks – April 25th – The Caring Force will fill the State House for our Sixth Annual State House Rally!

This year's rally will focus on the issues that you care about: creating a program to ease the burden of student loans, securing affordable health insurance and ensuring fair pay for comparable work.

More than 500 Caring Force members will pack the State House to rally for our pro-workforce agenda and honor Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo and Senator Linda Dorcena Forry for their leadership and support of human services!

These two legislative champions will receive the coveted Caring Bear Award, but more importantly, they will have the opportunity to hear directly from human services supporters like you. We know Speaker DeLeo and Senator Forry will be at the rally – but will *your* legislator be in attendance?

Use our pre-written letter to invite your legislators to attend the Sixth Annual State House Rally and request a meeting with them after the event!

We hold this rally on Beacon Hill to allow you to build relationships with elected officials, share your challenges of working in this field and discuss ways the Legislature can best support our agencies, clients and hard-working direct care workers.

Contact your legislators today to let them know you’ll be at the 2017 Caring Force Rally, invite them to join you in the Great Hall on April 25 and ask them to meet with you after the event!

Once you invite your legislators and request a meeting, all that is left to do is grab your gold T-shirt and enjoy the day! We look forward to seeing you on April 25 at the State House!
