Did you know that transgender people in Massachusetts can legally be denied care at a doctor’s office? Or that they can be barred access from stores, hotels, and restaurants? Unfortunately, it’s true.

Currently the state of Massachusetts does not protect the right to public accommodations for transgender people and it is about time that changed! Join Keshet, Boston Workmen’s Circle, and Moishe Kavod House as we phone bank with Freedom Massachusetts to ensure transgender people have the right to public accommodations in Massachusetts.

We are joining the fight for protections in stores, restaurants, hotels, medical offices, public parks, theaters, and even the MBTA. We will be contacting supporters in key areas of the state to raise awareness of this important issue and to ask them to take action in support of fairness for transgender people. We will start with a full training and there is a script for you to use. People will be there to help you the whole time. Come ready to make calls to representatives, cell phones and chargers encouraged!

If you would like to learn more about the campaign please check out Freedom Massachusetts’ Website http://www.freedommassachusetts.org/
or contact the Freedom Massachusetts Field Director, Katie, at 207-991-7479.
