Call your Legislators

Since legislators want to hear directly from their constituents, the single most effective action you can take is to meet with your own legislators, tell them your story if you have one, and ask them to support the bill. If you meet with your legislators, bring these two flyers with you to give to them:
Overview of the bill flyer
Myths vs. realities

The second most effective action you can take is to call your legislators.

Simply call your State Senator (we'll contact State Reps at a later point in the process) and ask whoever answers the phone if your legislator will support Senate Bill 1013/Senate Bill 2448 to make severe cases of workplace bulling illegal in Massachusetts. The purpose of this bill is to provide workers with a legal claim for malicious bullying behavior that has caused physical or psychological harm without regard to protected class status. (If the search doesn't work for your address, use a nearby address or search for your legislators on the Massachusetts Legislature website.)

(We also recommend you like your State Rep and State Senator on Facebook and post on their wall and/or page "What is your stance on workplace anti-bullying legislation? Will you Senate Bill 1013/Senate Bill 2448 to make severe cases of workplace bulling illegal in Massachusetts? The purpose of this bill is to provide workers with a legal claim for malicious bullying behavior that has caused physical or psychological harm without regard to protected class status." The public nature of the question encourages a response from your legislators. Report back their response, if any.)

We also ask you to call members of Senate Ways & Means, where the bill currently sits, even if you're not in members' districts:
