Your phone call now can help to establish a commission to stop bullying in Massachusetts, urge lawmakers to pass S2329. UPDATES & NEWSLETTER AT StopBullyingCoalition.org

This commission will be another first in the nation for the Commonwealth in strengthening the rights of citizens, leading the way to eliminating bullying, and thus assuring safety, respect, and dignity to elderly persons and people living with disability in public and multi-family subsidized housing.

Please call your Massachusetts state senator and representative today to urge passage of S2329, the "resolve creating a commission to study ways to prevent bullying of tenants in public and subsidized multi-family housing" that was approved by the Joint Committee on Housing on June 18. Please help getting it passed today, July 31 before the end of the formal session at midnight. (If not passed today, we hope it will be passed early during the informal sessions.)

This bill, which has bipartisan support, would create a well-balanced legislative study commission including representatives of key administrative offices, representatives of important joint legislative committees, and advocates of elderly and disabled citizens living in subsidized housing.

Thank you for your help and support.
