CONNECTICUT - transgender rights Bill passed House; Senate vote between now & June 8th!


GLADbanner

Dear Mycroft,

Last week, we heard great news as the Connecticut House voted 77-62 to pass HB 6599: An Act Against Discrimination, a bill that would add gender identity and expression to Connecticut's anti-discrimination law.

The House majority understood, as we do, that no one should live in fear of losing their job, or face discrimination in housing, public accommodations or credit simply because they are transgender.


Now the bill is moving on to the Senate, where it must pass in order to become law. We expect that vote to come as soon as this week (the legislative session ends on June 8).


Please contact your senators today and urge them to support the bill with no amendments.

With your continued support, we can make sure Connecticut affirms its commitment to providing equality and fairness by becoming the fourteenth state to add gender identity and gender expression to its non-discrimination statutes.

Thank you for supporting equality,

Jennifer Levi

Transgender Rights Project Director

P.S. I was elated to be there as the Connecticut House took a huge step toward achieving basic fairness and equality for all residents. You can read my reflections on the GLAD blog.
