We're looking for advocates to:
Share your story anonymously
for a hearing packet, our blog, social media videos, and a packet for all legislators. A suggested outline for your 1-2 page story includes:
Where did you work and what did you do?
How did the bullying begin? What tactics were used?
How did you feel?
How did it escalate?
How did your employer react (or not react)?
What was the impact on you?
What was the impact on the organization?
Why do you want workplace bullying legislation to pass?
What advice do you have for others going through bullying at work?
Email your story to email@example.com
Call potential supporters.
One of the most effective ways to build support is to call potential legislators and supporters. The best part: it's extremely easy (we have scripts) and rewarding since you speak directly with people who can make an impact. Make sure to bring your phone and laptop. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information.
Road Show Organizers and Speakers.
We're packing up our flyers and taking them around the Commonwealth to educate people on what workplace abuse is and how they can help make severe workplace abuse illegal. Since this group is all-volunteer, you can help to keep the road show moving:
- Organizers. Email organizations in your area (or anywhere in Massachusetts if you have contacts) to ask if we can speak to their groups: Democratic and Republican Town Committees, churches, progressives groups, unions, labor groups, women's organizations, etc. — whoever you're able to reach out to.
- Speakers. Speak about what workplace abuse is in your area. We'll train you online and setup appointments that work for you.
to sign up for either volunteer position. If you head up an organization
and would like us to speak about workplace abuse and the Healthy Workplace Bill
, email us at email@example.com
Write blog posts.
If you're a writer, share your skills on our blog
that reaches thousands of supporters. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
for more information.
Plan a Lobby Day.
Decide that you'd like to visit the State House to meet with your legislators, schedule a meeting time with their schedulers,
and ask others in your district to join you by letting us know when you'll be there. We'll get the word out to see who else is interested, and you'll get support and a chance to meet other advocates.
Upcoming Lobby Days
your chance to speak directly with aides who directly influence legislators' decisions.
Wednesday, March 13, 11am-1pm
State House, 24 Beacon Street, Boston, meeting in Memorial Hall, floor 2
Only State reps who haven't signed onto the bill
RSVP through the Facebook event
or email email@example.com
Lend your expertise and connections.
Have an idea that you can execute, such as creating an art exhibit, producing videos, writing an op-ed, or speaking about the bill to potential endorsers? Have connections you can make for the cause or know reporters or pro-labor organizers? If you'd like to discuss other ways to get involved in efforts, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
