We promote environmental & social health by preparing and supporting Massachusetts ballot questions and legislation in addition to sharing information and supporting lawsuits.
focus areas include clean government, democracy, and insuring laws exist to protect public health, Native ecosystem, PRIVACY, and intellectual freedom, especially in relation to technology.
Bills and contact information are detailed on the MA legislation page, many written by K. Beatty, and relate to protecting nature, limiting wireless, limiting fluoride, and protecting privacy.
You can sign in support of some of the bills -- this is a private account (Kirstin's) so information is not shared. Signing allows legislative staff to save time and serves as proof of support, but calling is more personal.
Links to testimony and relevant committee contact info is below -- however, if you can get your own legislator to support these bills that is also important. Find your state legislators here.

Fall 2022 we will launch a signature drive to support a Massachusetts constitutional amendment. This requires a great deal of planning and support, so please sign up for news and how to help HERE.
We are seeking membership and donations to help with a signature drive for a ballot question in favor of a state constitutional amendment. Please sign up here.
The constitutional amendment requires public reporting of conflicts of interest of certain state officers and candidates in executive and legislative branches, as well as candidates for the Massachusetts federal delegation to Congress, President and Vice-President. Tax returns and other required disclosures under oath are to be randomly audited. A more comprehensive discussion of this amendment can be found here.
Constitutional amendments can be amended by the legislature. Therefore, your help will be needed to help set up meetings with legislators to prevent misuse.
A version of this ballot measure was submitted in 2021 to the Massachusetts Attorney General and was found to have one error, illegal inclusion of judges. This error has been fixed. The extra time is also being used to strengthen the proposal.

Dear President Biden! This letter was prepared by EHT to request safer technology.
Wired Only Call! Tell Biden & your federal legislators we want wired communications only - and tell your state legislators you want wired-only too! See our 2 phone scripts, contact info, & summary of federal wireless legislation.
Safe & Sound Pro measurements - Dr. Magda Havas asks citizens to survey and report local wireless levels. See https://globalemf.net for information.
We've posted resources and information freely to educate, and will continue in hopes that you will act and lead on these issues independently. We hope a swarm of independent actions will disrupt industry manipulations.
Officially, the leadership is as follows:
Kirstin Beatty, director, who became active after becoming ill from wireless exposures. Kirstin works on writing, content, legislation, testimony, and research for Last Tree Laws as a volunteer. Essentially, Kirstin does everything! She has a website, Beatty.fyi, with further writings, educational materials, and an option for patronage. Her Twitter tag is @BeattyKirstin.
Our new ballot question committee will just have Kirstin as officer, until arrangements can be made otherwise. By law the name of the ballot committee must have Kirstin's name and the topic of the ballot measure, and so the name is long and odd: "Conflict of Interest Reporting by Kirstin Beatty of Last Tree Laws."
Anonymous is the webmaster, who prefers to remain anonymous!
We're focused on legislative avenues for change. Last Tree Laws was formed as mainly to focus on legislation, including as a Massachusetts ballot measure committee to put forward popular legislation that state legislators will not put forward for a vote.
Reducing wireless exposures and protecting environmental health are focus areas, but ballot measures and legislation include other topics.
Other work includes:
- Analyzing Massachusetts laws & conflicts;
- Researching & synthesizing relevant information;
- Freely sharing information neatly online;
- Organizing educational events;
- Stop 5G MA ordinance development;
- Ballot measure development.
Our fight for technology regulations isn't just about the environment or technology, but social justice.
A lot of legislation out there provides special favors and business opportunities for a few - instead, we favor legislation that helps everyone and avoids promotion of products, individuals, or businesses. Addressing societal problems should not be an exclusive business opportunity or require payment for knowledge or safety.
Locally, technology needs to be regulated in areas such as:
▪ developing safer, accessible technologies;
▪ limiting toxic chemicals & managing waste;
▪ limits on digital marketing & excess screen time;
▪ protecting digital privacy;
▪ protecting public education & curriculum;
▪ alternatives, such as eco-friendly jobs and entertainment;
▪ reducing electromagnetic emissions (wireless and electric exposures);
▪ acknowledge hubris and ignorance (e.g. genetic and nano engineering outcomes)
▪ limiting resource consumption (mining, scarcity);
▪ limits on automation (education, jobs, life);
▪ protecting quality of life and democracy in Massachusetts and globally;
▪ preventing monopoly, and
▪ preventing poverty.
