Massachusetts needs a state Child Tax Credit for kids 0-12.
After COVID-19, many parents lost their jobs to care for kids, especially in Black, brown, and low-income communities with many essential workers and high transmission rates. Now is the time to create a $600-per-child Massachusetts Child Tax Credit. Join the Care That Works coalition to demand that our MA legislators fund flexible child care and provide much-needed financial support to our families. Sign the petition today!
Call/Email Your Legislator!
Riders and workers across Massachusetts deserve representation on the MBTA Board, and a low-income fare that enables us to equitably access and afford our public transit systems. Call and email your legislator, and urge them to support better public transit for riders and workers across the state. Visit PublicTransitPublicGood.org for more information.

Tell Governor Charlie Baker, Lt. Governor Polito, and Environmental Secretary Katie Theohorides to act on energy justice today!
State programs, like Mass Save, which are designed to work with residents and businesses to improve their energy efficiency, have failed to service many of the people most in need. Sign the petition to urge Governor Charlie Baker, Lt. Governor Polito, and Environmental Secretary Katie Theohorides to reject any plan that doesn’t center the needs of environmental justice and low-income communities, and increase access and remove barriers for the underserved and language isolated communities across the state.
