Signatures to Amend the Massachusetts Constitution


As you may know, the Massachusetts Alliance to Stop Public Funding of Abortionwill be gathering signatures this fall to put an amendment to the state constitution on the 2018 ballot that would stop the use of taxpayer funds for abortion. They have done a great job setting up locations around the state to train people in signature gathering for the petition. Even if you are experienced at signature gathering from previous ballot referenda, we are sure you will learn from these sessions.

Dear Friends, 

Our paperwork is filed with the Attorney General’s office, we’re getting coverage in the press, and we’re organizing in each corner of Massachusetts. We anticipate we’ll have signature papers some time in September, but before that we want to make sure our volunteers are well prepared. 

We’ll be holding Regional Signature Drive and Activist Trainings at locations all across the state. We urge everyone to attend at least one of these trainings, and invite your friends to attend and volunteer. We’ll talk about the best strategies for signature gathering, legal dos and don’ts, what rights we have to gather signatures in public places, managing other volunteers, proper procedures for dropping papers off at town halls, and the next steps in our effort should we get the signatures we need. 

We encourage attendance by experienced signature gatherers and those brand new to the process. If you can attend, please click HERE to RSVP.
