GBIO is an organization of 50 religious congregations and other local institutions that joined together 15 years ago in order to more powerfully pursue justice in the State of Massachusetts. Since 1998, GBIO has played a critical role in securing Massachusetts health care reform, helping to roll over $300 million in to the construction of affordable housing in the state, and supporting local leadership in efforts to attain worker protections, school renovations, adequate access to school textbooks, as well as other major victories.
