The Coalition for Social Justice, working together with other organizations, achieved various accomplishments in economic, racial, and environmental justice in 2017.
Massachusetts is on the verge of passing significant criminal justice reform, making major steps forward toward addressing the problem of racially discriminatory mass incarceration. CSJ has been at the center of the grassroots movement that made this victory possible. We worked alongside many other organizations around the country to defeat Republican efforts to dismantle Obamacare and to slash the Medicaid program. We helped to beat back attacks by Gov. Baker on the welfare safety net. And we took big steps forward toward the passage of Paid Family Leave, the Fair Share Tax Amendment, and the $15/hour minimum wage in Mass.
On January 19th we came together to celebrate a successful year of work with volunteers and contributors.
A big thank you to our dynamic Cape volunteer organizer and host Sandy!
