Defending Transgender Rights

Since 2016, Massachusetts law has protected transgender people from discrimination in public places such as stores, restaurants, medical offices, parks, and restrooms. Now, anti-transgender activists have placed a question on the November 2018 ballot to put this civil rights law to popular vote. A YES vote keeps the law in place. A NO vote repeals the law. Come learn more at a forum, Defending Transgender Rights, on Wednesday, October 3, at 7:30 pm at Temple Isaiah, organized by Tzedek Isaiah and co-sponsored with Temple Emunah. Our speakers will include Rabbi Perlman; a leader of Freedom for All Massachusetts (; and transgender people who will share personal stories.

If you would like to participate in phone banking at Temple Isaiah, they are hosting two nights: Wednesday, August 22 and September 5, starting at 6:00 PM, including a full training.
