Urgent: Call Your State Rep



The MCAN Organization rejects the politics of EXCLUSION and HATE in the Executive Orders signed by the President yesterday. In response, we will be holding a Press Conference on January 31st:

Where: St Paul's Episcopal Cathedral
WHEN: (Gather by 9:30) 10am on Tues morning
WHAT: We see GOD IN EVERY HUMAN BEING.
We are Muslims.
We are immigrants.

WE WILL STAND TOGETHER and WE WILL LOVE EACH OTHER.

Fortunately, there is new state legislation that would protect all state residents by ensuring that state resources are not used to help the Trump administration deport immigrants and create a Muslim registry.

THIS IS WHAT YOU CAN DO!!

We are asking you to call your state representative at (617) 722-2000 to ask them to co-sponsor this legislation before the Feb 3rd deadline. To find your legislators, you can click here.


CALL SCRIPT:

Good morning/afternoon. My name is __________. I’m a constituent of Senator/Representative [name] and I live in____________. I’m calling to ask Senator/Representative [name] to cosponsor the Safe Communities Act, sponsored by Senator Jamie Eldridge (SD.1596) and Representative Juana Matías (HD.3052). This bill would protect the civil rights of all state residents by making sure our tax dollars are not used to help the Trump administration deport immigrants and create a Muslim registry.

The leadership and action in Massachusetts have always helped shape the nation’s consciousness on civil rights. When should I check back to see if he / she would co-sponsor Bills: SD. 1596 & HD. 3052

Here in Massachusetts, all of us – Democrats, Republicans, and Independents – believe that people should have access to quality, affordable health care. It hasn’t been easy, but we’ve made a real commitment month after month, year after year to fixing and improving our coverage.

And when the Affordable Care Act was signed into law, Massachusetts went all in – expanding Medicaid, setting up an insurance exchange, and working to make coverage more affordable. If the Republicans in Washington repeal and run, we here in Massachusetts stand to lose a lot:

  • Pre-existing conditions. The Affordable Care Act stops insurance companies from denying coverage to the 2.9 million people in Massachusetts with preexisting conditions.
  • Lifetime caps. The Affordable Care Act ended lifetime limits on 2.5 million people’s plans.
  • Preventive care. The Affordable Care Act has made preventive services like flu shots and cancer screenings free for almost 3.4 million people in Massachusetts.
  • Discrimination against women. The Affordable Care Act prevents insurance companies from discriminating against women or charging people more depending on their occupation.
  • Coverage for young people. The Affordable Care Act allows students and young people to stay on their parents’ insurance until age 26.
  • Prescription drugs. The Affordable Care Act helps the people of Massachusetts on Medicare save, on average, over $1000 on prescription drugs.
  • Small business tax breaks. The Affordable Care Act provides tax breaks for small businesses who provide health care.

Our health care laws aren’t perfect. We need to do a lot more to bring down the costs of insurance for working families. But we cannot and will not allow Donald Trump and the GOP to recklessly strip away coverage for millions of people who desperately need their health care.

Our first fight to save health care is this Sunday in Boston. Will you join us? Sign up now to help us fight back.
