The House has taken another valuable step in strengthening protections for those with disabilities. ... See MoreSee Less

Proud to have spoken at Inmate Visitation Lobby Day this morning in support of my bill H.2047 that would strengthen our state’s inmate visitation policies. As I’ve said before, it’s confounding that Massachusetts has taken a step backwards in our inmate visitation policies when we know that the research is clear— visits with family, friends and community build safer conditions inside houses of corrections and reduce repeat offenses once individuals are released. It’s a superpower to be able to re-enter your community after being incarcerated, but maintaining ties to the community eases the process.

Thank you to Prisoners' Legal Services and the Keep Families Connected Coalition for your support of the bill and for hosting this lobby day. I am deeply grateful to everyone who came to the State House today to advocate for this issue. #KeepFamiliesConnected #ProtectVisits

Proud to have testified yesterday for a bill I filed that codifies a rental arrearage program that helps families prevent eviction with upstream monthly support. I was grateful that I secured an arrearage pilot program in the FY19 supplemental budget and I’m looking forward to advocating that the program become permanent. Thank you Chairs Kevin Honan and Brendan Crighton and the Housing Committee for hearing this bill.

Also proud to have stood in support of ending the prohibition on rent control and providing tenant and foreclosure protections, two more important steps to making housing more affordable in MA. #LiftTheBanMA #RentControlNow
