Transgender equality in MA under threat

{[C-FIRST NAME:UC]}: Two years ago today, full transgender equality became the law of the land in Massachusetts.

Since July 2016 our transgender neighbors, family and friends have been protected from discrimination in public spaces like restaurants, retail stores and medical offices.

But this November, those protections could be wiped away as Massachusetts becomes the first state in the country to vote on transgender protections. A YES vote is a vote to uphold existing non-discrimination protections for transgender people in Massachusetts.

If you’re a Massachusetts voter who believes in fairness for transgender people, click here to sign Freedom for All Massachusetts’ pledge and commit to voting YES this November!

And if you represent an organization that supports transgender equality in Massachusetts, click here to join the 1,000+ member strong Freedom for All Massachusetts coalition.

Across the state, Freedom for All Massachusetts is building a coalition unlike anything Massachusetts has seen before—with transgender people and their families standing with a coalition of more than 1,000 faith leaders, safety advocates, businesses and more.

But if we’re going to win on Election Day, we need every fair-minded person in Massachusetts to speak out and say YES to treating our transgender neighbors with dignity and respect.

By adding your name now to Freedom for All Massachusetts’ pledge, you’re committing to preserving Massachusetts’ rich tradition of leading on civil rights—by voting YES this November.

Sign the pledge now: Commit to voting YES on November 6th to uphold basic protections for transgender people in Massachusetts.

And if you represent an organization or business that supports protections for our transgender neighbors, click here to join the Freedom for All Massachusetts coalition today.

P.S. We don’t yet know the ballot question number—but we expect to know soon. Once you sign Freedom for All Massachusetts’ pledge, they’ll keep you up to date at every turn!
