HRC is a happy sponsor of Freedom Massachusetts, the project dedicated to passing a statewide law that would add required sex identification nondiscrimination securities. The coalition includes MassEquality, the Massachusetts Transgender Political Union, GLAD, PFLAG, the Anti-Defamation Organization, Flexibility For All Americans, Boston Partnership of GLBT Youth, ACLU as well as many others, including the AIDS Activity Board, that organized our initial phone bank earlier this month.
Supporters of transgender civil liberties are prepared to take activity. As a team, we called HRC participants as well as fans to involve them in the campaign as well as asked them to contact their agents in support of our costs. Individuals were thrilled to talk with us concerning this essential problem as well as enjoyed to leave voicemails for Governor Baker as well as their lawmakers discussing why equality for transgender people means so much to them.
In the Bay State, we're commemorating the completion of our very first month of phone banks to win defenses for transgender individuals in public rooms. Massachusetts currently has explicit securities for the transgender community in the areas of housing, work, credit history and also education and learning, however explicit protections to ban discrimination in public cottages. This void in the legislation means a transgender individual can be refused service in a dining establishment, hotel, public transportation system or also a hospital without a clear lawful choice.
