Take Action

Contact your State Representative and urge them to support H.4153 and to contact House Ways and Means Chairman Aaron Michlewitz, and House Speaker Robert DeLeo to ask for quick passage of this bill in the House of Representatives.




We are building a coalition of leaders, supporters, volunteers, and partners interested in diversifying leadership and decision-making in Massachusetts. Support An Act to Ensure Gender Parity and Racial and Ethnic Diversity on Public Boards and Commissions (H.4153) by becoming a Parity On Board coalition partner.

As a coalition partner, you will receive updates on the status of the bill, have the opportunity to be a part of coalition meetings, and be the first to know of future interventions in support of this bill. As a coalition partner, you are committing to publicly advocating for this bill.


Stay up to date with coalition updates, bill progress, and future involvement opportunities by signing up for the Parity On Board monthly newsletter.
