Members and allies of the Greater Boston Interfaith Organization (GBIO) plan to turn out over 200 residents of Brookline, Newton, and Wellesley to share constituent stories and ask our legislators to pledge their support for $1.6 billion for Public Housing, Real Estate Transfer Fee enabling legislation, and housing support for returning citizens. The funding for Public Housing and the Real Estate Transfer Fee are part of Governor Healy’s Affordable Homes Act. Each legislator will be given time to express their candid thoughts on these items and to explain why they will or will not vote in favor of them when the time comes.
