Pittsfield Stand Out - TONIGHT!

GOAL Action Alert – Pittsfield Stand Out!

At the Pittsfield rotary (near the Civil War Memorial) on US Rte 7. GOAL Executive Director Jim Wallace will be in town on the 5th of August to record the GOAL TV show, so he'd like to get some people to stand out with him at the rotary.
What to do:
Stand out with GOAL and make your voice heard (and seen) GOAL will supply more information regarding signage, for now, bring your American flags and be ready to stand out against abuse from the office of Attorney General Maura Healey.
