You are invited to our next monthly meeting: Saturday, September 9, at 1:30
at the Democracy Center, 45 Mount Auburn Street, Cambridge.

***

The 9-week push for signatures is about to begin!

Warm up your clipboards and test your pens, because we’re going to need
your help in gathering 90,000 signatures in support of our newest ballot
initiative campaign. It requires that those funding our Massachusetts state
and municipal elections disclose all original sources of political
contributions, or a disclaimer is added to all advertisements that “foreign
nationals are most likely funding this advertisement.” This ballot
initiative corresponds to our bill H3559
<https://passmassamendment.wikispaces.com/file/view/H3559.pdf/611169149/H3559.pdf>,
which is in the statehouse right now.

The signatures you gather bring us closer to this becoming a referendum
question for the people to vote on directly. And they send a strong message
to our legislators that we’re sick of “dark money” and foreign entities
corrupting the democratic process!

Please do what you can!

•Think you have no time to help? Remember, every little bit counts. Really!

•Gathering signatures not your thing? Vital behind-the-scenes work awaits
you.

We’ll let you know when to check our website
<http://passmassamendment.wikispaces.com/The+Ballot+Initiative> for the
information and materials you’ll need.
