Hello Allies and Friends!  We are writing to remind all our allies who can to please: JOIN US NOVEMBER 19TH AT MA STATE HOUSE TO STAND UP FOR OUR FREEDOM TO BOYCOTT!

Find below three documents to aid in preparing any written testimony your organization or any individuals are planning to deliver to the Joint State Administration and Regulatory Oversight Committee.  It includes names of the committee members and their email addresses plus lots more useful and fabulous information!
 
REMEMBER! This bill is exactly the same bill as the 2017 version. We will be fielding several panels covering different topics related to the effects of this bill as well.
 
Please let us know if you will be testifying, if you haven't already. Here is our email address. We hope lots of folks will show up even if you don't wish to testify but to just be a citizen showing that you do not support any legislation that attempts to take away our right to boycott and first amendment right to free speech. We will be providing FREEDOM TO BOYCOTT! stickers for folks to wear.
 
We are sharing this hearing time with the two state bills, house and senate versions, looking to set up a commission to "study" the removal of the indigenous image on the state flag and seal.
 
Thank you for your time and participation in advance. Feel free to get back to us with any questions you might have.
 
See you on November 19th!
