City Hall Solidarity 2017!

News came in from Joel Wool and Matt Meyer: If you in fact missed the Greater Boston Chamber of Cooperatives meeting with City Hall on 1/24/2017, or you want to review it, the video of the hearing is here.
We had over 100 people attend! Thank you cooperators!
It made a big difference to have a crowd and as was evidenced in the hearing, we eased some councilors’ concerns with cooperatives while touting the benefits.
A couple of things you can do to support the momentum going forward:
  • -If you are a resident of or work or do business in Boston, please contact your city councilors or the entire city council* to thank them for holding a hearing (particularly frank.baker@boston.gov, josh.zakim@boston.gov) and urge their support for cooperative housing and business. It’s okay to be short and sweet! If you attended and testified, consider emailing along the testimony…
  • -Please read and share Ivy Lee’s piece in the Dig
  • -Share our photos when they are posted and join our Facebook group
  • -Stand by for future action alerts
*Here’s the full city council list:
