The Georgia Senate runoff elections are set for Tuesday January 5, 2021. We have a great opportunity to help flip these Senate seats and give Joe Biden and Kamala Harris a more receptive team to work with in the United States Senate.
There are myriad opportunities to help Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock win their runoff races.

Where Will Governor Baker Stand on Reproductive Justice?
Thank you to everyone who has helped work to pass the ROE Act by calling, sending postcards, lobbying at the State House, and more.After almost two years, the legislature has finally taken action!
In mid-November, the MA Senate passed a budget amendment incorporating several important parts of the ROE Act. The Senate version was stronger than the House version passed earlier in the month and we hope that the stronger language is adopted by the conference committee charged with reconciling the two budget proposals.Once the legislature passes the budget, Governor Baker has the option to either accept or veto portions of the bill. The budget could land on his desk soon and those opposing the ROE Act are well organized, so please contact the Governor now and urge him to support the ROE Act provisions in the budget. You can
Email Governor Baker using eitherthis formon the state website orthis onefrom the ROE Act Coalition, or
Call the Governor between the hours of 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM at (617) 725-4005
Join the Fight to Bring Transparency to the State House
If you’ve spent time over the past few years lobbying to pass legislation at the State House, you know how hard it can be to find out why many progressive bills with lots of co-sponsors and public support never come up for a vote. Massachusetts has one of the least transparent legislatures in the country, in part because of rules that the legislature has adopted that allow committee votes to remain private.
Our friends at Act on Mass have launched a Transparency is Power campaign to get these rules changed. The campaign is organizing teams of volunteers in legislative districts across the state to contact legislators before they vote on new rules when the next legislative session begins in January. Many MA Indivisible members have already signed up to join this campaign. If you haven’t joined yet, you can learn more about the campaign and sign up to help on the campaign’s webpage.
If you’ve already signed up for the campaign, please help recruit more members for your district’s team by sharing this flyer or posts from Act on Mass on social media.
