Massachusetts Trans Protections

With October 1st marking the second anniversary of protections for transgender people in Massachusetts leading officials celebrated this bittersweet anniversary by encouraging people to vote Yes on 3 as this anti-discrimination law goes to the ballot on election day. Speaker Robert DeLeo stated, “Two years ago, I was proud to help spearhead legislation that ensured basic protections for transgender people in our Commonwealth. We have seen no negative consequences as a result of our transgender nondiscrimination law & that’s why sexual assault prevention experts & law enforcement have joined me in supporting Yes on 3. I believe we can win another historic victory for fairness, because I believe in the people of Massachusetts.” Mason Dunn, Yes on 3 Campaign Co-Chair added, “Our coalition is a supportive network of transgender people & allies from all around the Commonwealth dedicated to preserving dignity, respect & equality in our state. This law has been successful in keeping our transgender friends & neighbors safe in the two years since it has been in effect. We are confident that we will be able to celebrate many more anniversaries of these protections after a historic victory for Yes on 3 this Election Day.” Yes on 3 has been working over the past two years to build awareness about the ballot measure & to increase familiarity with transgender people who are living, working & raising families in the Commonwealth. The “Yes” vote is supported by a coalition of more than 1,500 organizations, including law enforcement, domestic violence prevention organizations, businesses, faith leaders, labor unions & more. This November 6th please vote Yes on 3.

Massachusetts has led the way toward anti-discrimination and equal rights and we can't stop now. We have to set the example and all people of good intention and fairness will follow.
