Event Description

Massachusetts Communities of Faith Speak Out for Transgender Equality.

Keshet and The Interfaith Coalition for Transgender Equality invite you to help kick off a faith-based campaign in support of a civil rights bill for transgender equality.

Join with clergy, lay leaders, and community members from many faiths and spiritual traditions to celebrate our work and learn how you can take action and help pass a bill that will make Massachusetts a more just state for everyone.

Why this legislation ("An Act Relative to Gender-Based Discrimination and Hate Crimes"): Because currently in Massachusetts people can be fired, refused work, denied housing, education or credit simply because of bias against their gender identity or gender expression. This bill would outlaw such discrimination and add further protections against violence and harassment of transgender and gender non-conforming individuals in our state.
