Update:  Anyone feeling lazy about acting in support of this bill, a reminder of how dedicated the opposition is rests below the fold.


Your help is needed now to pass transgender non-discrimination legislation in Massachusetts.  Our friends at GLAD explain how you can help.

Next Tuesday, July 14, “An Act Relative to Gender-Based Discrimination and Hate Crimes” (H. 1728/S. 1687) will be heard by the Massachusetts Joint Committee on the Judiciary.

This bill will explicitly prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender identity and expression.

Please join us at the State House in Boston next Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. as we stand together with parents, employees, victims of violence and allies in the passing of this bill and the right for all Massachusetts citizens to work, go to school and live without fear. If you have not already done so, contact your legislators today and share your own story about why you support this bill.

A large show of support at the hearing on Tuesday will demonstrate to legislators that Massachusetts is ready to join the twelve other U.S. states, including Maine, Rhode Island, and Vermont, that protect all citizens equally under the law.

This is why we need all hands on deck to support the bill.  The hate brigade is not going to play nice.  They never have, they never will.

This is it: Hearing on HB 1728 next Tuesday

Weeks and months of lobbying, strategy and grassroots action have led up to the hearing next Tuesday before the Joint Committee on the Judiciary. The “bathroom bill” fight has been played out on the airwaves and in the halls of the Statehouse. Passage of HB 1728 is the top priority of the radical homosexual lobby in this state, and they have poured their resources into lobbyists and phone banks.

With 104 legislators having signed on as co-sponsors of the “bathroom bill,” killing this dangerous legislation in committee is critical. Efforts were successful last year due to a huge grassroots uprising spurned on by MFI and our coalition partners, emailing, calling and writing to the Judiciary Committee members.

That may not be enough this year. We need you at the hearing in Boston next Tuesday, July 14. Our opponents will turn out in large numbers as they always do, but we must be there in equal numbers. The hearing begins at 1:00 pm in the Gardner Auditorium. If you want to testify, it is strongly recommended that you get there early to get your name on the list, as this is how they will call people.

Please RSVP to attend either by replying to this email or sending an email to xxxx@haters.org. This is a fight that we can win, but not without your help. If you are able to help keep our hard-hitting radio ads on the air, please CLICK HERE to donate today.

As always, please visit www.nobathroombill.com for more information and to send emails to the members of the Judiciary Committee.
