ECCO is made up of faith communities from across the North Shore who have come together to build a powerful alliance, deeply rooted in the concerns and faith values of the community.
We are currently working on three fronts with this great group:
- Immigrant rights and a safe-driving bill granting licenses to undocumented immigrants
- Beloved Community organizing to promote dialogue and understanding in the community between police and residents, with a special focus on issues of race/ethnicity
- A State wide ballot initiative to create a second level of taxation for state income tax for those making over $1,000,000/year. This is a three year effort to amend the state constitution to allow for the implementation for a graduated income tax in Massachusetts.
