Equality Day 2011 is this Thursday, April 28! Equality Day is your opportunity to hear exciting guest speakers from the transgender community - like GLAD's Transgender Rights Project Director Jennifer Levi -- and to meet other advocates and citizen activistsworking to pass HB 6599, a bill that would prevent discrimination against transgender people in Connecticut.
Our partner organization ctEQUALITY will hold a mini-training on how to discuss the bill with your legislators, because Equality Day is also an opportunity to talk with lawmakers about the importance of making our state a place where people are treated fairly and equally regardless of their gender identity or expression. Our opponents are ramping up their efforts to defeat HB 6599, so we must show legislators and the public that we are unified and committed to full equality for all Connecticut residents!
Never spoken to your legislator before? No problem. ctEQUALITY will provide all the materials and resources you need and walk you through the process. They'll even book the appointment for you
Be sure to share the RSVP link with your pro-equality friends and family!
