Over the last couple of days many of our non-profit partners who serve youth have been sending desperate emails informing their supporters that 18,051 teens in MA will lose their violence prevention programs if the Senate doesn’t act to fund them. The final vote is happening tomorrow.
Right here in Jamaica Plain, the Hyde Square Task Force receives $200,000 through this State budget line item. The teenagers of this State need our support, this money literally saves lives in our communities. I don't want to image what will happen if this funding is cut.
Please call your State Senator
early tomorrow morning and let and tell them that you support raising new revenues in a fair way in order to fund Budget Amendment #EPS 659 the Dept. of Public Health Youth Violence Prevention Program 4590-1506.
Thanks for taking action!
