The Amherst League is a co-sponsor, with the American Friends Service Committee, of Represent Western Mass's Rally on the steps of Northampton City Hall at 6 p.m., April 15.
Representation Day is a national day of action; this rally will be one of 40 Tax Day actions held across the country. As Represent Mass Chapter Leader Steve Jones has said, "The current system of financing campaigns contributes to corruption and the voices of the people being drowned out. The result is taxation without representation...."
Speakers at the Northampton Rally will include Clare Higgins, William Dwight and Ryan O'Donnell, Rev. Andrea Ayvazian, Jeff Napolitano, and Bernadette Rabuy, representing Represent Western Mass.
