Read about the campaign calling for increased corporate and unearned income taxes to avoid state budget cuts.

MTA members are playing a key role in the Raise Up Massachusetts coalition’s Invest in Our Recovery campaign. This campaign seeks swift action by the Legislature to generate revenue needed for public health and public education, and aid to people affected by job losses.

Get involved

The Invest in Our Recovery campaign is bringing together working people and legislators to discuss the impact COVID-19  is having on our local communities.

In partnership with Raise Up Massachusetts, the MTA is co-sponsoring community briefings as part of the 'Invest in Our Recovery' campaign to advocate for increased state taxes on profitable corporations and their wealthy shareholders.

Please make plans to attend one of the upcoming community events.
