I am a strong, long-time supporter of equal marriage rights for same-sex couples, having started early in my career as a young organizer working for MassEquality. As State Senator, I work actively to ensure our government protects, respects, and values all families and individuals. I was proud to be the lead sponsor of the transgender equal rights laws passed in MA in 2012 and 2016. These laws now assure equal protection for trans Bay Staters in the areas of employment, housing, credit, education, hate crimes, and public accommodations.
Despite the ugly policies being proposed in Washington, we were able to score major victories at the state level in Massachusetts this year. Now is the time to double-down on our progress and keep working to make sure the legislature passes key immigration and education bills.
