If the state of our state doesn't feel like paradise to you, and you'd prefer to support a true democratic alternative to today's politics as usual, we'd welcome your contribution in support of voter outreach, candidate support, and day to day party expenses. We're not expecting that you can come up with federal fund limit of $10,000, or even the state fund limit of $500 (but hey, go ahead and surprise us). Instead, please consider what a government that truly worked for us, listened to us, and answered to us would mean to you, how more Green-Rainbow party members in elected office could help bring that about, and then contribute at at level that would be meaningful and significant for you.
Please note: by party policy, we don't accept contributions from state or federal registered lobbyists, no matter what the issue. We want you to be sure that when we speak, we speak for the people of Massachusetts — not for special interests seeking sweetheart deals. Our support comes from you.

Whereas: These subsidies are being granted to a corporation so wealthy that it testified to City Council that it could build the $300 million tower with cash on hand, and is on the Forbes 100 list, earning over a billion dollars a year in profit.
Whereas: This subsidy money is being taken from essential city and state services including schools, libraries, parks, transit, youth jobs and community centers, even as their funding is being slashed.237 signatures
We ask that the city and state revoke the $24 million in property tax breaks and $22.5 million in state subsidies granted to Liberty Mutual for the construction of a new office tower. Redirecting these funds to city and state services would make a real difference in people’s lives.
