Increase affordable housing! Call in to the governor!


Increase Affordable Housing  

Call-in Day to the Governor  

Wednesday, December 14th


Too many people are struggling to afford the high cost of housing in Massachusetts.  Let’s work together to advocate for more affordable housing. 

On Wednesday, December 14th, the Building Blocks Coalition is asking that you take 1 minute and make an important phone call.  Please call Governor Patrick @ 1-617-725-4005, introduce yourself, and send a simple message:


“I am calling to ask the Governor to increase funding for affordable housing in the FY2013 budget. Working families, seniors, and persons with disabilities all need affordable housing to be healthy and productive, and for children to be able to learn.  Thank you for your support.”
