Good for her. Email from Mimi Lemay, mother of a transgender child, sent to the AG’s list of supporters on her stationery:
There’s a bill in Massachusetts that would fix this situation. Similar legislation has passed in 18 other states with no negative consequences, but in Massachusetts, of all places, it’s facing serious opposition from the same groups that fought against marriage equality. This bill needs champions, as does Jacob.
Thankfully, we have found such a champion in our Attorney General, Maura Healey.
Last week, under the leadership of AG Healey, Jacob and other transgender residents of Massachusetts earned rousing support from some powerful voices. #EveryoneWelcome, a social media campaign, hit the ground running, featuring short “selfie” videos recorded by celebrities from the world of sports, television, politics and music. I was moved to see videos from, among others, the Boston Bruins and the Celtics, soccer great Abby Wambach, Caitlyn Jenner, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and actress Kathy Griffin, declaring support for our transgender community.
An interesting question is: should Healey run against Charlie Baker in the next election? Perhaps his leaden Donald Trump Republican electoral shoes will have been fully fitted by then. What do you think of the letter, and the next governor’s race?
