This week, about 40 family-values advocates joined us at the State House for Lobby Day. Guests heard from eight pro-family legislators and other leaders of the movement on issues of life, human sexuality and parental rights. MFI staff were also able to educate attendants on how to be involved in the Bay State and approach legislators on crucial issues that will impact our families.
Despite the interruption of a fire alarm and a brief evacuation, the day was a success thanks to our dedicated advocates who returned to conclude the meeting and visit their legislators. With the help of Lobby Day guests, every single Massachusetts legislator received information highlighting a few key bills that could impact our families such as Justina’s Law, the Transgender Bathroom Bill and Doctor-Assisted Suicide.

Thank you to all who attended Lobby Day, and we hope that those who could not make it this year will join us next year!
