Is That Really The Best You Can Do?

Transgender Awareness Week Announced for November 15 – 20th
18 Oct 2009
mtpc_logoplus110.pngThe Massachusetts Transgender Political Coalition (MTPC) is proud to announce that November 15 though November 20, 2009 will be Transgender Awareness Week in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This week will be dedicated to educating the public about their transgender neighbors, co-workers, friends, and community members and the pressing issues that are currently facing the transgender people in Massachusetts. Events and educational opportunities are being planned around the state by MTPC and a variety of organizations and community groups.
Massachusetts is one of the few remaining New England states that does not have explicit protections for transgender people codified in its laws. This lack of state level protections negatively impacts transgender people and other individuals whose gender identity and/or expression may not conform to social expectations about gender. Specifically, this places those individuals in increased risk of bias in employment, housing, public accommodations, education, and credit. Some national studies have shown that up to 56% of transgender people have been fired because of their gender identity or expression.
