About the Event
In 2016, transgender equality was written into the law in Massachusetts. But this November, those protections could be wiped away, as Massachusetts becomes the first state in the country to vote on transgender rights. And it will take each and every one of us to ensure that equality prevails at the ballot box and everyone votes YES on 3 to uphold equality.
Join other GLAD supporters to help get out the vote! We’ll canvass and talk to voters about why this issue matters. All talking points and materials will be provided, and no experience is necessary.
Location accessible from the Quincy Center MBTA stop. | Parking available.
