GBIO Update February 2, 2024

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.
Our next big event is the Housing Justice Action on Sunday March 3 at 3pm at the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center. See here for more details and to register for this important event!
