Dear Massachusetts,

It's time to speak out for your right to repair

The people of Massachusetts have always stood up for their right to repair. In 2012, state voters passed a law that ensured residents’ right to repair their car wherever they wanted. Now, it’s time to do the same for electronics and other equipment.

On October 21 at 1 PM, the Digital Right to Repair Act,  S.107 / H. 218 will have a hearing in the Gardner Auditorium at 1 PM. You can help by attending or providing testimony in support.

Let us know via email if you can attend.  Hearing details are on the Legislature’s site.

With the Digital Right to Repair Act, H.218 and S.107 we have a chance to guarantee our right to repair electronics — like smartphones, computers, and even farm equipment. The Digital Right to Repair Bill requires manufacturers to provide owners and independent repair businesses with fair access to service information, security updates, and replacement parts.

Common Questions about Right to Repair

What does Right to Repair do?

Right to Repair is simple. It requires manufacturers to provide owners and independent repair businesses with fair access to service information and affordable replacement parts. So you can fix the stuff you own quickly—and get back on with your life.

That sounds great! Who would be against that?

Well, manufacturers like John Deere and Apple don’t like the idea. When your tractor breaks or your cell phone stops working, they want to be the only people who can fix it. And they get to set whatever prices they want for parts and service.

Is Right to Repair a new concept?

Nope! We already have right to repair for cars—that’s why you can take your Ford into a local mechanic. They have all the same software diagnostics and service manuals that the dealerships have. This is the result of decades of auto Right to Repair legislation—laws that have been a resounding success.

How can I get involved?

It’s time to fight for your right to repair and defend local repair jobs—the corner mom-and-pop repair shops that keep getting squeezed out. Write or call your legislator. Tell them you support the Fair Repair Act. Tell them that you believe repair should be fair, affordable, and accessible. Stand up for your right to repair in Massachusetts!
