Quick Hit: Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition Launches “I AM: Trans People Speak” Campaign

As Massachusetts’ gender identity and expression nondiscrimination bill makes its way through the state legislature, the Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition ramps up public education efforts with this multi-media campaign “I AM: Trans People Speak.” Today, nearly 300 people descended on Boston to lobby for the bill.

While a Williams Institute report shows that 76 percent of transgender workers in the state have been discriminated in the workplace, the same percentage of voters in the state know that this is wrong, and believe that transgender people deserve employment protections.
