Salem: Vote Yes on 1

Sometimes, acting locally really is acting globally. Our friends in Salem, Massachusetts are in a heated local fight over a ballot initiative that would undo the Sanctuary for Peace Ordinance, which was passed in March 2017 and declares that the city will not discriminate against residents based on their immigration status.

The opposition is very mobilized. A defeat in Salem would not only hurt communities there, but also have a ripple effect throughout Massachusetts, damaging city and state-wide efforts to say no to the Trump deportation machine. That’s why we need your help to support the Yes on 1 campaign.

There are three ways you can help: door knocking, phone banking, or poll monitoring.

Please select the activities and the corresponding dates you are able to volunteer. We will follow-up with more details. 

All routes will be walkable or you will be paired with someone with a car. RSVP for more details, including where to meet up. Keep in mind parking and travel are terrible in Salem in October, so consider taking the MBTA commuter rail if possible.

Make calls to Salem residents encouraging them to vote Yes on 1.

The ACLU will be holding a training for people who want to help monitor the polls on Election Day.
