The more we’re silenced, the louder we get. More advocates than ever came to Harvard Square this weekend to help make “workplace bullying” a household term and to courageously speak out against it, even with tape over their mouths. The big takeaway: it’s a growing movement, with more advocates protesting and more response from the public.
With less than three months left in this two-year legislative session, we’re making an impact by urging the public to take note and sending a message to legislators that we’re not backing down, even if passing the bill means they’re held accountable for bullying.
Awareness turns into action:
- Urge Speaker of the House DeLeo and Chairman of the Third Reading Committee Speliotis to make a priority of bringing the Healthy Workplace Bill to a floor vote. Face-to-face meetings work best. But you can also call them or touch base with your own state rep to urge him or her to contact Speaker DeLeo (617-722-2500, Robert.DeLeo@mahouse.gov) and Chairman Speliotis (617-722-2410, Theodore.Speliotis@mahouse.gov). You can also urge others to do the same by flyering commuter rail lots and other locations.
- Continue to bring the term “workplace bullying” to the public’s attention. We’re increasing our number of bloggers to strengthen our social media voice and holding more protests. Join us.
