March for Truth

Gather on Boston Common to join sister rallies from across the country in peaceful demonstration on Saturday, June 3rd. Join with other concerned citizens to RECLAIM OUR DEMOCRACY, to advocate for restoring integrity to its institutions, and to protest the Trump administration's dangerous, destructive policies and actions.

As events progress in Washington, we've updated our Mission Statement:

We call for a #MarchForTruth to raise our voices and let our elected leaders know that Americans want answers.

The legitimacy of our democracy is more important than the interests of any party, or any President. So, we will rise together to call for a complete, fair and impartial investigation, for the pursuit of truth, and for the restoration of faith in our electoral system and the Office of the Presidency.

Across the country, peaceful demonstrations will be arranged on Saturday, June 3rd.

- Yes, a special counsel is in place, but that's just a start; the battle is far from over to get to the bottom of this investigation. 

- We still need an independent commission with subpoena powers. The bombshell news that Robert Mueller has been appointed by the Department of Justice to serve as Special Counsel on the Russia investigation comes after a "cascade of damaging developments for Mr. Trump in recent days," as the New York Times reported. But as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi put it, "A special prosecutor is the first step, but it cannot be the last. Director Mueller will still be in the chain of command under the Trump-appointed leadership of the Justice Department. He cannot take the place of a truly independent, outside commission that is completely free from the Trump administration's meddling." 

- And Congressional investigations must continue. As Rep. John Conyers, Ranking Member of the House Committee on the Judiciary noted, "the appointment of a special counsel does not relieve Congress of its responsibility to conduct oversight of the Trump Administration." 

- The gravity of this situation is profound. The sovereignty of our nation was attacked to elect a man who is a threat to the rule of law. There are criminal investigations, and investigations into matters of national security, that must be completed to restore our faith.

- The culture of deceit that surrounds Donald Trump and his associates must be dealt with urgently. If this man was elected in part by colluding with a foreign power, then we must know it. We must know if our government is legitimate. For if it is not, then we must right that wrong. We must restore trust, in our government, and in one another.

OUR GOALS ARE SIMPLE:

- An independent commission must be established and Congressional investigations should be properly resourced and pursued free of partisan interests;

- As much information should be made available to the public as possible, and as soon as possible;

- If crimes were committed or if collusion is discovered, it must be prosecuted.

- Congress must compel Donald Trump to release his tax returns to clarify any foreign obligations

THE PUBLIC DESERVES TRANSPARENCY AND A NONPARTISAN PURSUIT OF THE TRUTH

*Note: By choosing to attend this event, you are acknowledging the risks involved, and you are committing to participate nonviolently and in accordance with the law, and to work to de-escalate confrontations with opposing persons or others. You agree (i) not to engage in any act of violence or violation of any applicable law and (ii) to obey the orders of authorized event marshals and law enforcement authorities.

Rally for Public Education

  • Boston Common, corner of Beacon & Charles St. Boston, MA (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Parents, educators, students, and anyone concerned about the future of public education, join us at this Rally!

We Demand:
Full funding for public education, Pre-K through college
Debt-free public higher education
Less testing – more learning
Equitable access to quality education for all students

Last year, we won a landslide victory in Massachusetts against the forces of privatization, defeating a dangerous ballot initiative that would have drained hundreds of millions of dollars from our public schools. Now, the struggle continues.

We must stand together to resist the plans and policies of Trump, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos, and Governor Charlie Baker. It is time to demand the public schools and colleges our communities deserve. By uniting our struggles, we can build a movement for racial and economic justice and fight more effectively for a just society and future.

RESIST, INVEST, ENVISION


Can't join us in Boston? There are multiple rallies planned throughout Massachusetts, with FREE bus service from around the state.

Amherst • Cape Cod • Fall River • Framingham • Gloucester • Greenfield • Haverhill • Holyoke • Lawrence • Lowell • Lynn • New Bedford • Plymouth • Raynham • Salem • Taunton • Worcester

People's Climate Change March

In the context of the Trump Administration’s climate change denying and a Congress controlled by the right-wing it is clear we all must both protect the gains made in recent years, even if those have been limited gains, while we articulate and demand initiatives to move our nation to a new, clean energy economy.

Tax Day March: April 15

If you can't get to Washington, D.C. to march, join us in Cambridge, MA!

WHAT IS THE TAX MARCH?

The Tax March is a movement gaining momentum around the country to demand transparency and fairness from our Commander-in-Chief. Throughout his campaign, Donald Trump told the American people he would release his tax returns. Despite intense public pressure, President Trump has not yet done so – breaking with 40 years of precedent in the process. His administration's excuse? "People don't care." {excerpt from http://taxmarch.org}

Join us in this action to grow the movement for the right to quality healthcare for all in Massachusetts!

Town Hall

KATHERINE CLARK

SATURDAY • MARCH 18, 2017 • 10 am
LEXINGTON HIGH SCHOOL
251 Waltham Street • Lexington, MA

Over the last four months, in town halls and in grocery stores, I've had thousands of people come to me with one question: "What can I do?"

The Trump administration and GOP Congress are threatening to roll back all the progress we've made in the last eight years. From education to health care to basic human and civil rights, our communities and our democracy are under attack, but we stand ready to fight back.

Given these conversations, and as a first step in our fight, I will be hosting Onward Together: an MA-5 Volunteer & Advocacy Fair on Saturday, March 18th at 10:00 a.m. at Lexington High School.

This will be an opportunity to learn more about progressive efforts on the local, state, and national levels as well as an opportunity to connect directly with progressive movements and organizations about how you can start taking action now!

The message I've received loud and clear is one of overwhelming resolve. People are ready to defend the progress we've made and to continue to advance the values of our communities.

Please RSVP here:
