The MA Chapter enjoys a strong reputation of supporting legislation that promotes social and economic justice issues. One of these bills has to do with lifting discrimination against transgender people. We share the following position with our colleagues at the Freedom Massachusetts Coalition:
"In Massachusetts, no one should have to live in fear of discrimination based on their identity – that’s a simple idea that we can all support. Sadly, under current state law, there are no explicit protections against discrimination for transgender people in most public places like parks, hotels and restaurants."
That’s wrong, which is why NASW-MA is proud to be one of the many organizations that have joined the coalition working to update our state’s non-discrimination law to fully protect ALL people from discrimination.
On Thursday, September 17th, please join Freedom Massachusetts and other coalition partners at an important State House Lobby Day!
