Our partners have led and won important racial and economic justice policies in Massachusetts including Earned Sick Time, Criminal Offender Record Information reform, election modernization victories such as Early Voting, protections for senior transit riders “The Ride”, bilingual ballots for Chinese & Vietnamese voters (Boston), and many more.
Our partners joined hands and established the MVT because we know that our Democracy is at a crossroads. Though perceived as a bastion of progressive politics at the national level, Massachusetts has one of the highest gaps in income and wealth inequality in the nation, presenting real challenges for the New American Majority and making organizing imperative.
We believe that it is in our hands to reclaim Democracy so that it fulfills its promise as a government for, by and of the people. Therefore, we work to organize, educate and mobilize our communities to fully engage in civic life.
