Carry It On: MCAN's Annual Celebration

Event Time: 
6:00 - 8:00 p.m.
Event Presenter: 
Massachusetts Communities Action Network

Celebrate with community leaders, politicians, business leaders and organizers from across Massachusetts as we honor change makers who are taking progressive action for racial and economic justice. As we work to strengthen our network more deeply than ever, this evening will provide opportunities to reconnect with old friends and meet emerging leaders. We look forward to welcoming you.

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!
