Find out how the Healthy Workplace Bill hearing went


Our hearing in front of the Joint Committee on Labor and Workforce Development at the State House today went incredibly well. Supporting testimony came from:

  • Our panel comprised of co-coordinator Greg Sorozan, president of NAGE Local 282 whose lobbyists push the bill at the State House for us, bill author and Suffolk law professor David Yamada, and advocate Susan.
  • Lead sponsors Rep. Ellen Story and Sen. Katherine Clark and other legislators.
  • Roughly 12 advocates who bravely told their stories and provided insight into why we need a law.

Special thanks to Greg Sorozan and NAGE for leading the hearing efforts and for compiling written testimony for the committee.

We thank you for your hard work in getting us to this point. We’re grown tremendously since the last session thanks to your efforts in spreading the word.
