Dear Budget for All organizers,
Yard signs and rally signs came in this week! They look great and are going fast, so if you'd like some for your town, be sure to speak up ASAP! We're asking a donation of $3.50 for yard signs (if available - only a few left) and $1 for rally signs (coated paper, 18x24). Below, B4A supporters at Somerville's HONK Festival yesterday.
Legislative Endorsements are piling up! This week Senators Sonia Chang-Diaz, Tom McGee, and Sal DiDomenico and Representatives Denise Provost, Frank Smizik, Linda Dorcena Forry, Timothy Toomey, Marty Walz, and Jason Lewis announced their support for the Budget for All; the complete list is at www.budget4allmass.org/supporters. Please call your legislator’s office and ask him or her to sign on, and if you can, come down to the State House this Thursday at 11am to visit more legislators. Meet in the 4th Floor cafeteria in the State House. Contact: Laurie Taymor-Berry, email@example.com, (617) 491-1318, or Bette Keva, firstname.lastname@example.org, 781-576-0279.

The peace movement has lost one of the tallest trees in the forest. The loss of MFSO so soon after the memorial service for its co-founder Charley Richardson is a reminder that our movement and our organizations are only human and that change is eternal.
