Fairness For All Marylanders Act - today & this Weekend Of Action



I spent the workday at the Maryland State House in Annapolis, where my partner Julia McCrossin and I delivered supportive materials about MD's trans rights bill, the Fairness for All Marylanders Act (#FAMA14), to all 147 House delegates. As part of the Maryland Coalition for Trans Equality campaign, we worked with Equality Maryland staff and volunteers to deliver a cover letter highlighting the 71% support for the bill, a myth and fact sheet, a letter about the online petition signatures, and the constituent postcards.

And this weekend is a Weekend Of Action for the bill, especially in Baltimore and Takoma Park, so check that out too. The opposition has been making a lot of legislator contact, and the session ends at the end of the month, so they really need to hear from supporters!
