JOIN US FOR LOBBY DAY! Wednesday, April 9th to support Raise Up Massachusetts. To register, click here.
Lobby Day will be an opportunity to take action and celebration Bishop Tom Shaw’s leadership for legislative action.
On Lobby Day, we will come together as Episcopalians to learn more about the Raise Up MA campaign and meet with legislators to ask for their support.
Raise Up Massachusetts is a campaign to support an increase in the minimum wage and earned paid leave! To date, the Raise Up MA campaign has collected 285,000 signatures in an effort to get earned sick time and minimum wage on the ballot in 2014.
Corporate lobbyists are fighting to tie the raise in the minimum wage to cuts to unemployment insurance. To put things bluntly, they think that this long overdue raise to the minimum wage should only come at the expense of unemployment insurance.
Please contact your state legislators and urge them to:
1. SUPPORT a long-overdue raise in the minimum wage BUT
2. OPPOSE any unemployment insurance cuts that are tied to this bill.
To contact your state legislator, call the MA State House switchboard at 617-722-2000 or visit www.wheredoIvoteMA.com to find your legislator.
TOGETHER OUR VOICES CAN FORM A CHORUS FOR JUSTICE!

ECM worked with Social Capital Markets to create a forum for social entrepreneurs and investors, faith leaders and activists, cultural creatives, and thought leaders are all seeking to align what they care about with their jobs, and with the way they spend and invest their money.
ECM provided a Parish Enterprise Competition grant to Church of the Holy Spirit Orleans so that they could create a Free Food for Kids summer program in four Cape Cod Communities. In the summer of 2013, they provided 6,300 meals!
