URGENT: Call Now to Support the Gender Identity Anti-Discrimination Act!

 

Dear Maryland Catholics for Equality Supporter:

The fight for full equality in Maryland continues in Annapolis. The Gender Identity Anti-Discrimination Act is moving through committee and is expected to come to a floor vote in the House of Delegates within days! Our state legislatures need to hear from Catholic constituents calling for an end to discrimination against our transgender brothers and sisters in housing, employment and when applying for credit.

As Catholics we are called to help those in society who are misunderstood and oppressed. Discrimination towards someone because of their gender identity continues to increase at an alarming rate. Most face some form of workplace discrimination, many to the point of being unemployed and eventually homeless, simply because they are, or are perceived to be, transgender.

This year is the year is the year we end discrimination against our transgender brothers and sisters. Act now and let your legislators know that as a Catholic you cannot stand by while transgender people continue to be discriminated against here in Maryland. Contact your state legislators today and tell them to VOTE YES on HB235.

CALL: 1-800-492-7122

Remember to state that you are calling as a Catholic citizen.

Remember to leave your street address to make sure they know you are a constituent.

If you don't know who your delegates are, click here to find which Delegate or Delegates represent you. Below the map of Maryland enter your street address and City/Town where indicated then click "Find Elected Officials" to see which Delegates represent you. You may be represented by up to three Delegates and it is very important that you contact all three.

Anti-equality voices continue to spread fear and misinformation about another anti-discrimination bill here in Maryland. Please don't let you pro-equality Catholic voice go unheard at this critical time.

House of Delegates may act very soon and vote on HB235. Contact you legislators today and tell them to VOTE YES on HB235. Stand with the pro-equality majority of Catholics in Maryland and help end discrimination against our transgender brothers and sisters.
