About This Campaign
This November, voters in Massachusetts will be voting on whether to keep their 2-year old law protecting transgender people from discrimination in public places like restaurants, hospitals and bathrooms. We need to share the facts and make sure our supporters turn out and vote!
Why Does It Matter?
A 2014 survey found that 65% of transgender people living in Massachusetts reported experiencing being discriminated against in an area of public accommodation such as restaurants, hotels or hospitals.
Additionally a study found that transgender people who reported experiencing discrimination are 84 percent more likely to experience adverse physical effects and 99 percent more likely to experience emotional effects – like frustration, anger and sadness. It’s a vicious cycle – the same study reported that discrimination in public places increases the likelihood that transgender people won’t seek the medical care and treatment they need for health problems.
