NEGRO ELECTION DAY HOLIDAY STATUS
January 2019 - February 2021
What is Massachusetts Doing to Preserve Black History?
In 2021 Salem United, Inc re-submitted to Senator Joan B. Lovely paperwork for Negro Election Day to be a State Holiday. It was not passed to the Senator.
On February 18, 2021, Senator Joan B. Lovely submitted Bill SD.1790 192nd (Current).
Supporters of the Bill:
We reached out to the Salem League of Women Voters and await to have their support!
Urban League of Eastern Massachusetts
The Bill is to honor the Slaves who developed the first Black Voting System and established a self-black governing system.
We have a lot of work and welcome your support.
