Flyers

Flyer #1

Balance Flyer: pdf or Word (doc) format

Simple half page flyer: doc. Be sure to edit the contact information! Or you can use the pdf version with Peace Action contact info.

Right to the City has produced a Spanish flyer, Chinese flyer, and a double-sided flyer with background information on why the Budget for All is important.

Senate or House? We are collecting by State Senate district in Boston and adjacent communities -- 8 Senate districts in all. In all other parts of the state we are collecting by State Representative district. This handout provides a quick list of the cities, towns and Boston neighborhoods in each Senate district, and lists the towns where we are working by Senate district. (In Sen. Brownsberger's district we are also double-collecting by House district as a precaution. If you live in that district be in touch with the campaign to get clarification.)

The petition form is different for Senate and House districts! Be sure to use the correct form for each district! The difference is near the top where it says "Shall the Senator..." or "Shall the Representative..."

Elections Division's listings of House districts and Senate districts, including the cities/towns, wards, and precincts in each one.

Can you help collect signatures? Volunteers are needed across the Commonwealth to gather 200 signatures per state representative district between April 26 and July 3. If you are interested in helping out, sign up here or contact one of the above names.
