Massachusetts Peace Action, North American Indian Center of Boston, and Cambridge Friends Meeting – Peace & Social Concerns Committee will co-sponsor a forum on Changing the Massachusetts Flag and Seal; Wednesday, January 9th, 7 p.m. Cambridge Friends Meeting, 5 Longfellow Place, Cambridge, 02138.
The event will share information about the developing campaign to change the flag and seal, including legislation to be filed in the State Legislature in January and the Spring 2019 city council and town meeting campaign. We will also learn about the Trump Administration’s challenge to Mashpee Wampanoag sovereignty. Join us to learn, discuss, and make plans!
The Campaign is Growing!
Two new volunteer town coordinators have come forward to help pass supporting resolutions at Annual Town Meeting in Spring of 2019. The towns of Williamsburg and Dartmouth have now been added to the growing map. We’d love to add your town or city to the list of Massachusetts communities where town meetings or city councils will consider passing resolutions to change the Massachusetts flag and seal. To help with the Spring 2019 town meeting campaign, sign up here.
