The Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition has proposed a bill to amend the Commonwealth’s stance on Hate crimes, focusing on Gender-based discrimination and transgender American’s. This bill is coming to hearing Tuesday July 14, 2009 and Sean is one of the bill’s co-sponsors. This bill is bringing the Commonwealth up to speed with the rest of the country regarding transgender-inclusive non-discrimination and hate crimes laws. Because of a number of citizens that have been discriminated against due to their gender transformation alone, the Commonwealth must act now. Sean invites you to voice your opinion on this or any other issue in the blog or through email and phone.
As always Sean can also be reached at the office 617-722-2400 or on his cell phone 781-859-7781. His email address is Sean.Garballey@state.ma.us.
