Trans Lobby Day

May 15, 2007



Lobby Day for Transgender Equality - Support HB 1722, An Act Relative to Gender-Based Discrimination and Hate Crimes Part of Clock in for Equality - National Day of Action for Workplace Equality





Massachusetts State House


Room 350


10 am -12 noon





House Bill 1722 sends a clear message that no one should face violence or experience discrimination in employment, housing, credit, public accommodations, or public education simply because of their gender identity or gender expression. This legislation strengthens the Commonwealth's commitment to ensuring that all people, including transgender people, are treated fairly under the law and given an equal chance to contribute to our communities and economy.





Please come educate your legislators and ask them to support HB 1722. MTPC will provide a short lobbying training and all necessary materials.





Sponsoring Organizations: Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC), The Gay and Lesbian Labor Activist Network (GALLAN), and Clock in for Equality - National Day of Action for Workplace Equality. For more information visit www.masstpc.org or www.gallan.org.





To get to RM 350


Enter the State House through the General Hooker entrance. Go through security, and then go left. Walk down the hallway. There will be a set of elevators on the left. DO NOT take those. Walk to the second sets of elevators. Take them to the third floor. When you get out of the third floor, make a left and walk down the corridor. Room 350 is on the left. It's the first door on the left after walking into the "Members Only" section (or through the first set of doors).
