MassEquality is hosting phone banking for the bill, and MTPC is scheduling a Transgender Equal Rights Lobby Day for the bill -- LOBBY DAY HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED from Thursday April 14th TO TUESDAY MAY 3RD!
Volunteers are Needed for Phone Banking for Trans Equality
In order to provide our priority legislators with positive constituent contacts for the Transgender Equal Rights Bill, MassEquality will be hosting three phone banks every week
-- and we need volunteers that can commit to shifts. We are looking to generate 100 patch-throughs to all the Senate and House Judiciary members by April 15th and in order to do this we will need a groundswell of volunteers. Phone banking is easy, fun, and a great way to educate people on transgender rights. Groups can do shifts together.
Tuesdays & Thursdays ~ 5:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Saturdays ~ 11:00 a.m. -- 4:00 p.m.
Sundays ~ 1:00 – 5:00 p.m.
262 Washington Street -- 7th Floor
(Downtown Crossing - Red and Orange Lines)
Pizza & other refreshments will be provided to those that attend.
You can also phone bank from home. On Sundays, MassEquality provides training for folks who want to phone bank from home. Come in for a one-time training on how to use the system -- then you can do your phone banking from the comfort of your home.
If you have any questions or want to volunteer, please contact volunteer coordinator Clare at 617-878-2325 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or sign up online at http://www.massequality.org/events/volunteer.
