Deadline

We’ve come a long way since the Massachusetts Healthy Workplace Advocates had their first hearing at the State House in 2010, halfway into the two-year legislative session. But we introduced the bill at the beginning of this legislative session, and with a few hundred supporters to contact, we added eleven co-sponsors to the mix. We’re overjoyed at how much progress we made between these two legislative sessions.

But since it generally takes years to pass a bill into law, we knew we were up against a several year process from the getgo. And now with the most progress we’ve made in one session under our belts, we face two months left in this legislative session. We have until July 31, 2012 to pass this bill before we have to re-introduce it next January — which means that we need everyone’s help in spreading the word about the bill. Here’s how you can help »
