April 30th “Stop the Cuts, Raise the Revenues” Rally/Lobby Day

Wednesday, April 30, 10:00AM-6:00PM, State House, Boston

This is our chance to turn Beacon Hill around and convince the Legislature that they must raise the revenues needed to prevent devastating budget cuts. Dozens of organizations and thousands of individuals from all over Massachusetts will converge on Beacon Hill for a full day of lobbying and a series of events. Come for all of the day, part of the day, or whatever best fits your own schedule! The main rally is at 2:00 p.m. (see agenda below).
