To our members and advocates for life,
We understand that many of you are concerned about coronavirus (COVID-19), especially in wake of the governor's declaration of a state of emergency.
At this point, we have cancelled the Convention, taking into consideration Boston College's closure. The March 18th Lobby Day is being moved to a remote event (see my next weekly email for details). The April 2nd lobby day at the State House is also cancelled in light of the state shutting down all outside events on Beacon Hill.
Currently, our Mother's Day Dinner featuring Dr. Alveda King will still go forward in Holyoke, MA.
If anything changes, and we believe the safety of our members is at risk, we will be in touch with more updates on our later Spring calendar of outreach events.
Your health and safety, along with the health and safety of the little ones we seek to protect, is our top priority.
This situation may evolve over the next few weeks, and we’ll continue to provide all pertinent updates. For additional questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to our team by replying to this email.
Stay safe, savvy, and remember that even if you're settled at home away from the virus, you can still call and email our lawmakers using this easy to follow call script.
Yours for the most vulnerable,
C.J. Williams, Director of Community Engagement
Massachusetts Citizens for Life
