Hi LGBTQ HC of Baltimore! In 2012 the right to marry was legalized and we helped it survive the referendum and that was great! So now I need that same great effort again. Last week a new bill, "Fairness for All Marylanders Act of 2013" was introduced to the state Senate. We have decided to back this bill and join the Maryland Coalition for Trans Equality! The first Lobby day will be held on Monday, February 18, 2013. We need you to come and help us to tell our Senators that we want this bill to pass through to the house! The event will be from 6pm til 8pm down in Annapolis on Lawyers Mall and we would love to have this Lobby Day be as huge as those that were held for Marriage Equality. But in order to do this we need you to help us. There have been requests for District Representatives to escort groups to their lobby appointments as well as sign-in people and greeters. Please tell us if you will be attending at this link please..http://equalityfederation.salsalabs.com/o/35015/p/salsa/event/common/public/?event_KEY=2154 and how you can help at this link...https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0ArZRO3UR-D6rdGRIczVBRWJtemlGYVRzNDZBbWxEaEE#gid=0
Especially if you are going to be an escort we ask that you do not wear jeans. The opposition can be very critical and putting our best faces forward can help to cut through the negative reactions. We hope that you will come and be voices for those that do not have a voice. This organization prides itself on our record on our treatment of our Trans members and leadership members. So please come and help us to show this on Presidents Day, Monday, February 18th!
*For any questions please contact me, Lucas McCahill through our messaging option on this meet up page and I will be sure to answer them the very best that I can.*
