Massachusetts Transgender Equality
anti-discrimination protection for transgender people across Massachusetts & is a significant victory in the face of the disturbing trend of legislation targeting transgender people & undermining their basic civil rights being introduced in states & municipalities across the country. We extend our sincere thanks to Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo & bill co-sponsors Denise Provost & Byron Rushing for their strong support of the bill & their leadership on this important issue. We also thank the 116 Representatives who voted today to extend the Commonwealth’s anti-discrimination law to cover transgender people & finally close the glaring gap in legal protection that was left open with the signing of the Transgender Equal Rights Law in 2012. With their vote, they have affirmed the principle that discrimination has no place in Massachusetts."
