Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition has the details, including links to the poll and Lake research Partners’ analysis of the poll. But first, Bay Staters need to take action with the help of this email from MassEquality sent out Thursday. Time is short.
A poll just released by Lake Research Partners shows that 76% of likely voters in Massachusetts, including 81% of women, support H1728–An Act Relative to Gender-Based Discrimination and Hate Crimes. These results prove what we knew all along: ending harmful discrimination against the transgender community is a Massachusetts value that state legislators need to make a priority.
With only five days to go before the state legislature adjourns for the year, now is the time to take action and help us push for passage of this important bill. Right now, H1728 is being held in the Judiciary Committee, with no set date to be released for a full vote in the legislature.
Please send an email to your State Representative now urging them to contact Speaker DeLeo to make the Transgender Rights Bill a priority. Although a majority of state legislators have already voiced their own support for transgender equality, we need them to weigh in with Speaker DeLeo to help move the bill in the current legislative session.
Just CLICK HERE and we’ll help you send that email to your legislators.
