THANK YOU to all those who attended the In-District Meeting with Sen. Creem and Reps. Vitolo, Balser, Khan and Peisch this past Monday evening at Union Church in Waban.
There were 230
in attendance from 18 worship congregations and a few affiliated organizations active in housing and services to returning citizens, including 25 of us from the United Parish!
Throughout all of the IDM’s held around greater Boston, the support from elected officials has been very positive overall, as was the case with our IDM on Monday. GBIO is showing our state elected officials our strength, as we advocate for action by the Legislature on our Housing Justice Campaign platform in the areas of public housing, more funding for affordable housing through the real estate transfer fee, and better programming for citizens returning from incarceration.
