Massachusetts is a leader among states in its approach to individual freedoms. In 2017, we passed the ACCESS Act, a first-in-the-nation law to protect Massachusetts residents’ rights to birth control. And we passed legislation to repeal mandatory minimums for certain drug offenses. But there’s more to do.
Today, I added my name to support the ACLU’s efforts to push what it’s calling the Freedom Agenda. The Freedom Agenda is a basket of proposed legislation around women’s equality and reproductive rights, LGBTQ equality, defense of immigrants, criminal justice reforms, and governance improvements. The ACLU will be sending postcards to legislators on my behalf, emphasizing this set of bills.
