Groups in Massachusetts can use the ballot to make law and to amend the state constitution.
Unlike many advocacy groups, our ballot initiatives have focused on using the state's legally binding petition process, and has gathered signatures only from registered voters.
Our last statewide petition was in 2020
See here for our "Original Signers" petition for our 2020 statewide ballot initiative.
Over the years, the state's Attorney General declined to “certify” our petition claiming that “Corporations Are People”! She didn't say that while she was running for office! But nonetheless… Click here for her "2020 declination letter" informing us of her refusal to certify our petition as “legal”. And click here for our 2020 response.
