Jill Stein, the Massachusetts Green-Rainbow Party candidate for governor, has invited supporters via her facebook page to join her campaign team for a rally at the MA State House at 12 noon on Thursday 6 May in support of reforming CORI, Massachusetts’ criminal background check system that keeps residents from accessing jobs and housing. Details from Massachusetts Jobs With Justice below:
ALL OUT FOR CORI REFORM!
The Commonwealth CORI Coalition is calling on all supporters of CORI
reform to join us at the State House for a Rally and Lobby Day.
Speaker DeLeo has made commitments to bring CORI to a vote this
session. Now that the House is done with the budget, we have a window
of opportunity to pass CORI reform in May.
Rally & Lobby Day for CORI Reform
Thursday, May 6th
12pm – Rally on State House Steps
1pm – Visit Legislative Offices
2pm – Debrief and Next Steps – Room B1
The CORI, the state’s criminal background check system, keeps
residents from accessing jobs and housing. CORI Reform was passed
last November by the Senate, but is still awaiting a vote in the
House. CORI reform will increase taxpaying residents, reduce
joblessness and help reduce crime. Demand CORI reform now!
