UPDATE: Keep calling your State Legislators!

Monday, Feb. 3rd is Call-In Day #2. Make another call today—Your Voice Gets Results!

PLEASE RE-POST THIS MESSAGE BROADLY: EMAIL, FACEBOOK, TWITTER when we pour calls into the State House it has real impact! Amplify your support by sharing this with your friends and networks!

Call your State Representative and Senator and the Judiciary Committee Monday, Feb. 3rd, 2020!

Ask them to get MAAPL’s Bills moving. Call Today!

If these bills are not “reported out” of committee by February 5th, they will die. If that happens, MAAPL must start all over again next year, reintroducing these bills and working hard to gain support for them.

Foreclosures will devastate us for more years to come, but we have a chance to make a real difference and help MA homeowners and communities struggling against foreclosure!

Here’s what you do:

If you don’t know who your State Representative and Senator are, go to Type in your address. It will tell you who your elected officials are and their phone numbers. Write down the names and phone numbers of your State Representative and Senator, then call each one.

What do I say?

“Hello, my name is                     . I live in name of your town. I’m asking you to tell the Judiciary Committee to report out these anti-foreclosure bills favorably:

The foreclosure crisis is still very much with us. Homeowners are fighting foreclosures throughout the Commonwealth daily! We need these legal protections.

We must stop the emptying of our neighborhoods and increasing homelessness.

Please, as my Representative/Senator, will you ask the Judiciary Committee to report out these bills?

Thank you.”

Then call the Judiciary Committee — 617-722-2396 — and ask them directly: “Please report these anti-foreclosure bills out favorably” [and read the list of bills above].

When you have finished making your calls, e-mail Grace Ross, MAAPL Coordinator, at Tell her who your Representative/Senator is and how they (or their legislative aide) answered your request.
