The Massachusetts Judiciary Committee recently advanced legislation to implement the recommendations of the Special Commission on Facial Recognition Technology to further limit such technology in Massachusetts. The House Judiciary IT Bond bill adopts the same language and we need the Senate to add it to their IT Bond bill. Please contact your state senator today and urge them to do so.
Since it is the end of the legislature’s session, two other good bills need your help:
- S2988 is the Senate’s forfeiture reform bill. Contact your House representative and tell them to vote for it;
- The Massachusetts Safe Communities Act (S.1579 and H.2418) would end voluntary police and court involvement in deportations, and communicate loud and clear that in Massachusetts, everyone can seek help, protection and treatment without fear of deportation. Tell your legislator they should vote for it.
All three take only a few clicks. Do it today!
