FEATURED ORG: Freedom for All Massachusetts
Freedom for All Massachusetts is the campaign for transgender equality. We're working to defeat a dangerous statewide ballot question that would repeal our state’s transgender non-discrimination law. If passed, this Massachusetts law will be repealed and protections that ensure fair and equal treatment for our transgender neighbors, family, and friends would end. In November, Massachusetts voters will be asked whether to keep the current law protecting transgender people from discrimination in public places like restaurants, hotels, and hospitals.
