It's Time for Equality and Justice for Transgender Bay Staters

We don't want to live in a Massachusetts that protects the right to discriminate against people who are transgender. Their rights shouldn't be stalled because of electoral politics. It's time to update our laws. Tell the State House -- pass the Transgender Accommodations bill -- no more delays! SIGN our petition below and we'll deliver your message to your State Rep. 

(Don't forget your address, so we can deliver it to the right place!)

Dear Legislator, 

It's been long enough. Legislative leadership promised a vote on “An Act Relative to Transgender Anti-Discrimination” before the end of 2015. As we head into Spring, and near the end of the legislative session, it's time for a vote.

State law still leaves transgender Bay Staters vulnerable and unequal.  Just for being themselves, transgender people can be denied service or access at a restaurant, in a public park or in medical offices.

An Act Relative to Transgender Anti-Discrimination” would explicitly protect our neighbors, friends and family from discrimination.

As my representative in the State House, I'm asking you to urge leaders to bring this bill to a vote as soon as possible. Our transgender family, friends and neighbors shouldn't have to wait any longer.  

Massachusetts should be the leader in transgender rights -- not lagging behind. 

Please let me know how you are advocating for this bill with your colleagues on the Hill.

Equality under the law is not a privilege to be doled out. It is past time for the Trans community to be protected from discrimination here in MA. Please enact with all due haste.
