Boston Community Stabilization Act Campaign Update
"The only hope the [Community Stabilization Act] has of passing this time is for people to make enough fuss that the councilors won't be tempted by the real estate industries' big bucks. Which means the people of Boston are going to have to make a lot of noise."
- Editorial supporting CSA in West Roxbury/Roslindale Parkway Transcript
URGENT - HELP NEEDED!
Please pitch in now so we can win the upcoming city council vote! We are creating momentum for Community Stabilization by doing outreach across the city - and we need your help. We can not compete with the deep pockets of the real estate industry on this one, so we need everyone to do their share.
Below are volunteer opportunities for people. Right now, we have raised enough money to do a 20,000 piece mailing to respond to the misinformation of the Small Property Owners Association. That's 20,000 more than we were able to do last time. But if we could get another $5,000 in the next 10 days, we could send 40,000. If you can't help do phone calls or lit drops, send a check.
If your organization can print a list of people for us to call during our phone banks this weekend, that would be great. Ideally, organizations are doing their own calls, but if you need help, we'd be happy to get the calls done. Let us know if this arrangement works for you.
