On Election Day, Nov. 6, 2018, Massachusetts Ballot Question #3 will ask voters whether to uphold a law that protects transgender people from discrimination in public spaces.

A “YES” vote keeps the current law in place.

Leading advocates Jason Wu, J.D., executive director of GLAD (GLBTQ Legal Advocates and Defenders) and Alex Coleman, Ph.D., J.D., a clinical psychologist, attorney, educator, parent, grandparent, musician and Jew who has lived, worked and advocated for more than 25 years as a transgender person, will address the audience on an interactive panel.

Speakers will share the history of Question #3, its national significance and what’s at stake. The discussion will explore why some feel uncomfortable about gender identity and expression and how to move toward greater understanding. The discussion will also explore how discrimination affects transgender individuals and their families, and why transgender rights are a Jewish issue.

This program is co-sponsored by Congregation Beth El and Keshet, and is supported by the Beth El Adult Education and Tikkun Olam Committees.

All are welcome to attend.
