Referendum Materials

New Color Flyers

Help distribute these half page flyers widely! Tell Paul Shannon at AFSC how many you need and when, and he will print them in color for you. Pass them out at public events, subway stops, anywhere voters gather.

You can also print these flyers yourself -- they look ok in black and white also.

Here is the version with no question number filled in and ones that say Vote Yes on 4 and Vote Yes on 5. (Numbers 6 and 7 coming soon) Use the version with the question number in your town.

Other Flyers

Here are other flyer designs. Feel free to modify to suit -- with local contact info, material about your town or your view of the issues. Send requests or suggestions for improvement to the Materials Committee c/o Cole Harrison (cole@masspeaceaction.org, 617-354-2169>.

Signs

Order Yard Signs and Rally Signs!

The Coalition has ordered yard signs and rally signs. Both are 18"x24". The yard signs and the first design of the rally signs do not have the question number in; you need to write in the question number for your town with a red magic marker (recruit a volunteer with good penmanship so it looks good). The second design of the rally sign lists Question 4 and is for use in Boston, Cambridge, Brookline and other towns where the B4A is Question 4.

We request donations to cover them ($3.50 for a yard sign, ***NEW REDUCED PRICE*** $1.00 for a rally sign). Please fill in this form to place your order. (Note: for UJP member organizations, UJP will pay half the cost; contact Duncan McFarland, UJP treasurer (mcfarland13@gmail.com) to arrange.)

Update, 10/3: the yard signs are in, but are all spoken for. If you want yard signs (or rally signs) but have not ordered them yet, please do so and we can order more. The rally signs are also in and are available.
