Tomorrow, March 4th, the Judiciary Committee is holding a hearing on House Bill 1722 — an incredibly important piece of legislation which would add gender identity and expression to our state non-discrimination and hate crimes laws.
Transgender people in Massachusetts face discrimination every day — in employment, housing, credit, education, and public accomodations — yet there are currently no laws to protect them.
It’s time we change that.
Take a moment and contact your legislators today to ask them to support H1722. It’s easy to do: just click here to use MassEquality’s Contact Your Legislator tool, and we’ll do the work of looking up your legislators and their contact info for you.

Your voice can make a real difference. Opponents of equality have put the word out on the rightwing radio stations and conservative networks, and they’re flooding the State House with calls opposing equal rights for transgender citizens.
We know legislators are closely monitoring the calls and emails they receive from constituents — and we can’t let the other side dominate the debate.
Please take a moment to contact your legislators in support of equality today!
