While time is running short to pass public accommodation non-discrimination protections for transgender people this year in Massachusetts, people across the state are taking action to support transgender rights.
Every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, Freedom Massachusetts gathers a team of dedicated volunteers to call voters across the state. Our volunteers reach out to our supporters and ask them to leave messages for their legislator and Governor Charlie Baker, urging them to support this bill.
This past week, over 20 volunteers generated at least 70 messages for key lawmakers. However, with the deadline fast approaching and several important people, including Governor Baker, undecided, we need your help. Together, we can work to ensure that the transgender community is protected in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. We thank all of our current volunteers and urge others to join our volunteer team in support of LGBT equality.
Freedom Massachusetts is a joint effort of state and national organizations, including the Human Rights Campaign, Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition, MassEquality, the American Civil Liberties Union, Freedom for All Americans, Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders, the Massachusetts Gay and Lesbian Political Caucus, BAGLY, the Massachusetts Commission on LGBTQ Youth, the Anti-Defamation League and PFLAG.
