#SPHDSS18

This November, Massachusetts voters will face the first-ever statewide popular vote on protections for transgender people from discrimination. The referendum would repeal the state law (Bill S.2407) that protects transgender people from discrimination in public places, including restaurants, stores, and doctors’ offices. Both sides of the issue have said that either way, the results will have repercussions across the country. The Activist Lab has invited a panel of experts to discuss how we got here, and what’s at stake.

Doors open at 12:30 p.m. Please RSVP at the link provided.
