Prepare to VOTE
There are incredibly important votes happening on November 6 (You better be registered! Do you know where your polling place is?). Of course we have Obama v. Romney and Warren v. Brown…but have you read the language for the 3 state-wide ballot questions yet? Do it now and make an informed decision! Don’t forget to find out what’s up for vote in your district, like Somerville’s vote on the Community Preservation Act or Cambridge’s non-binding initiatives!
Ongoing- Homelessness Crisis
Thanks to new eligibility requirements from the Department of Housing and Community Development, families in need of emergency assistance (EA) are increasingly not getting the help they need. There is a real human cost to these new rules- from families inundating emergency rooms for shelter to predatory men offering a place to sleep with a high cost. Read this summary for more information, and make your voice heard!

Pipeline in the Community
What do you think, Pipeline? Does that message grab you? Tell us how you read it, and your thoughts on the rest of the #MASenDebates!
Hopefully everyone is coming off tonight’s MA Senate Debate fired up and ready for more! If you missed tonight’s live-tweeting, no worries: your next opportunity to engage with Pipeline over a debate is this Wednesday when our presidential candidates square off at 9pm EST.
We here at Pipeline understand the value of grabbing a drink while experiencing these debates, and so we are scouting out bars where we can watch together! The trick: finding somewhere with good sound. As of this evening, we have several options for a viewing party. Please take advantage of any (all?) of these opportunities! If we get more information about the excellent audio or lack thereof we will let you know asap!
Meanwhile: do you have opinions? Do you like articulating them? Shoot us an email if this seems like you. Pipeline is looking for someone to do a rapid-response analysis of the debates!
The upcoming Presidential debates are: October 11 (VP), 16 and 22. More details here. MA Senate debates are: Oct 10 and 30. Stay tuned for opportunities to watch and discuss with Pipeline!
Don’t forget that The Rumble is Saturday, October 6th at 8pm!
