January 2019 - February 2021

What is Massachusetts Doing to Preserve Black History?


In 2018/2019 Salem United, Inc 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:

1.  Salem League of Women Voters
2.  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.
