This forum is intended to educate the community on transgender rights in MA and the challenge to those rights posed by Question 3 on the statewide ballot November 6. LWVMA has taken a "yes" position on Question 3 which affects the 2016 state law that banned discrimination against transgender people in places of public accommodation, such as restaurants, malls, and restrooms. Because of potential confusion arising from the required wording of the referendum, a “yes” vote on Question 3 would actually keep in place the current law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of gender identity in public places. The forum is sponsored by Temple Beth Elohim Congregants for Transgender Equity in partnership with the Unitarian Universalist Society of Wellesley Hills, Wellesley Congregational Village Church, World of Wellesley, OUT MetroWest, Keshet, Freedom for All Massachusetts and the LWVW.
