Education associations representing the state’s largest teachers unions, superintendents and school committees know it’s important to treat everyone with respect.
Consequently, they all support Massachusetts’ non-discrimination law that ensures fair treatment for transgender people. The law applies in public places like restaurants, shops and hospitals.
These leaders stood up two years ago to help pass these protections. Now, the education community is standing up for a ballot measure that would affirm them.
State educators can attest to the successful implementation of fully transgender-inclusive policies. Since 2012, Massachusetts law has prohibited discrimination against transgender people in public schools. These regulations protect students’ access to facilities that match the gender they live every day.
These organizations know protecting students from discrimination helps them learn in school—and helps them thrive outside of school. Join Massachusetts’ leading education associations in pledging to vote YES to uphold these protections.
