VOTE YES ON 3 TO PROTECT TRANSGENDER RIGHTS
Speaker Mimi Micner of Keshet (11:30)
As Massachusetts faces a call to protect transgender civil rights at the ballot in November 2018, HBT is supporting a YES vote on the ballot initiative to prevent a rollback of non-discrimination protections for trans people in public spaces that the legislature passed in 2016.
Come hear Mimi Micner speak about what the Jewish community is doing and what YOU can do to uphold human rights and to protect our transgender community members from discrimination.
