Last week, The Caring Force launched an e-advocacy campaign urging legislators to co-sponsor our fair pay for comparable work and student loan repayment bills. We asked you to send emails to your legislators and you responded – nearly 1,000 messages were sent in just the first week!
We need to keep up the momentum. You can check to see if your legislator has signed onto our legislation – and if they haven’t, please reach out to them and urge them to co-sponsor the bills. You can check the list of co-sponsors at the links below, and if they haven’t co-sponsored yet, you can use this link and ask them to do so.
- HD.1257 An Act relative to a loan repayment program for human service workers
- SD.1630 An Act relative to a loan repayment program for human service workers
- HD.1400 An Act relative to fair pay for comparable work
- SD.588 An Act relative to fair pay for comparable work
All it takes is five minutes today to help strengthen the human services sector and build caring communities throughout Massachusetts. With your help, we can build support for an educational loan repayment program and eliminate the pay disparity between state workers and community-based workers. And all you need to do is enter your name and address — we will do the rest!
If you already sent a letter last week, please consider using our Action Center to tweet at your legislators. You can also share the link to our Action Center with friends, family, colleagues and clients.
We appreciate your advocacy! Stay safe and well.Back to All Blog Posts
