Senator Markey answered questions and shared how he has led on issues that matter most to the people of Massachusetts, including his co-authorship of the Green New Deal and championing net neutrality.
The supporters joined Senator Markey for a discussion on how he has delivered for the Commonwealth, including recently securing $25 million for the Centers for Disease Control to study gun violence prevention, the first funding of its kind in over 20 years.
Senator Markey has served in the United States Senate for the last six years and is widely regarded as the leading member of Congress on environmental issues. He has also led legislation to protect consumers and address the opioid epidemic, internet privacy concerns, and net neutrality.
