Dear ACE members, friends, and allies,

On Tuesday October 17th, 9:30AM, there will be a legislative hearing for An Act Relative To Environmental Justice and Toxics Reduction in the Commonwealth (H.2913/S.426). The hearing will take place in hearing room B-1 at the Massachusetts State House and is open to the public. We are asking that all of our members, friends, and allies turn out to this vital hearing to show their support for environmental justice across the state! Public testimony is welcome.

The legislation that would require all the Secretariats in the state to develop environmental justice policies to protect low-income and minority communities, which face disparate environmental burdens and hazards. As part of the Green Justice Coalition of community, environmental, and labor groups, ACE is moving as one of our signature pieces of legislation for this year.
