Cambridge Somerville Makes Calls for Immigrant's Rights!

Recently, grassroots progressive activism has notched some major victories — and our opposition is taking notice. The intense and sustained pressure from people like you has forced them to get creative in their attacks.
Governor Baker has now introduced legislation that is as creative as it is unconstitutional. In the wake of the Lunn Decision in the Mass Supreme Court, a ruling that prohibits local court officers from following ICE detainer orders, Baker's new bill seeks to backdoor warrantless detention back into Mass law. Allegedly designed to facilitate "cooperation" with federal agents in the "transfer of convicted criminals," this is language so broad that instead of promoting "public safety" (its stated purpose) it allows local law enforcement to serve as adjunct deportation agents.
Baker's bad bill must be stopped before it can be voted into law. Join us every Tuesday evening in August at the Workbar in Cambridge (45 prospect st) from 6:30-9 as we will apply targeted phone-banking pressure statewide to both oppose this legislation and support the Safe Communities Act.

Tuesday, August 15th: Make calls for immigrants' rights!

The Safe Communities Act protects the civil rights, safety and well-being of all residents by drawing a clear line between immigration enforcement and public safety. We encourage you to join us this Tuesday, August 8 at 6:30 pm for a phone banking session in support of this worthwhile cause at Workbar in Cambridge (45 Prospect St).

Cambridge-Somerville makes calls to save affordable health care!

Cambridge-Somerville for Change is hosting weekly Tuesday night phone banks to call voters in targeted states and ask them to keep the pressure on their legislators to oppose the disastrous Republican bill. The bill includes drastic cuts to Medicaid and would allow states to drop vital benefits including maternity care, emergency services and mental health treatment.


Grassroots pressure has already made a tangible impact in the fight against Trumpcare, leaving the repeal-and-replace effort effectively dead in the water.  Now the Senate Republicans have turned their attention to repeal-and-delay, a stunningly catastrophic approach that will strip insurance from 32 million people!  And although the public opposition of Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Shelley Moore Capito puts that effort very much in jeopardy, the fight is not over by any means.

Say what you will about the character of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, but he is nothing if not ruthlessly competent.  Rest assured he will use every tool at his disposal to bully and buy off the members of his caucus in order to get to 50 votes.  We cannot afford to take our foot off the gas in the wake of these collective victories against Trumpcare; now more than ever it is imperative that we keep the pressure on moderate Republicans to stay strong in their opposition to this cruel and devastating legislation.  Further, at-risk senators like Jeff Flake and Dean Heller need to be shown that a “yes” vote will very likely put them out of a job in 2018.

CSfC phone banks will reach out to voters in those target states and give them the education and direction needed to make their voices heard.  We are closing in on the end of this fight, but the coming weeks are key.  It is imperative that we keep these public servants accountable to the public they serve.  Please join us in this effort.
