Statement on Exclusion of Safe Communities Protections

To say I’m disappointed is an understatement. For six years, voters have been advocating for fair immigration protections here in Massachusetts. Representative Sánchez has had a mixed record over that time, and today he failed to stand up for Safe Communities. Thousands of us went to the streets, City Hall, and the State House to protest—I was there. I am devastated that our representative, even after that, won’t stand with us to protect residents and families. We refuse to have our taxpayer dollars used to terrorize our communities. Rep.

I’m sobered because in the face of anti-LGBTQ+ court decisions, slow-moving local LGBTQ+ legislation, and a state ballot initiative that’s only necessary because so many people want to reverse much-needed protection for transgender rights, I’m reminded that we have so far to go.
