Please join us to learn more about MCAN’s efforts to:

- Organize for fair and adequate public education funding for all children in MA!

- Stand up for Immigrant rights through campaigns including monthly vigils to show support to those in detention in South Bay; provocative actions such as a 76 mile March to the NH ICE facility with faith leaders carrying a child-size coffin to raise moral urgency about immigrant children dying in US immigration camps; statewide legislation for immigrant driver’s licenses; and a Sanctuary Network to resist deportations of immigrants

- Re-launch of the Fair Share Tax campaign to raise $2B for education and transportation with allies in Raise UP MA

MCAN is building on a strong track record. They played a major role in the recent victory to win large-scale criminal justice reform. MCAN was instrumental in the successful campaigns for a $15 statewide minimum wage, Paid Family Medical Leave and Earned Sick Time for all workers.

We need to bolster our solidarity now more than ever! We hope you can join us!
