BIO takes leadership role in winning vote for safer roads in Massachusetts
Yes on 4 for Safer Roads was a successful campaign to uphold the commonsense law known as the Work and Family Mobility Act The act allows qualified residents, regardless of immigration status, to obtain a standard driver’s license if they provide proof of identity, date of birth and Massachusetts residency, as well as pass the required driver’s test.
This will ensure that all Massachusetts drivers are properly tested, licensed, and insured.
We act towards justice by building relationships within our communities
and across lines of difference, developing our leaders' skills in the public arena,
and taking action on issues of common concern.
MICAH - Virtual Celebration
The Judeo/Christian prophet reminds us in Micah 6:8. God wants us to act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with our God
From local faith community outreach actions to countywide collaborations through BIO, community organizing helps us answer the call of MICAH, building power, by working together, to make the changes needed in our county.
Volunteer Community Car Ride Service Campaign
We're building relationships between those facing transportation challenges and regional power brokers, researching and developing innovative models for statewide transportation, and pushing for their implementation.
"Organizing is a magic, born of materials we all have:
stories, interest in others, being moved to action on behalf of relationships…
all these elements coming together deepens and enriches community."
- Martha Congdon, Past BIO President
