Part of our mission is to advocate for laws that bring equality and protection to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.
- Tell your story.
- Put a face on the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
- Explain what the legislation will mean to you and your family.
The power of PFLAG is in the voice of the parent. There is no more compelling voice than yours. The call of a parent advocating for equality and protection for their children will move hearts and minds in a way that no other call can. Therefore, we make a special request to parents to join us on this important day.
Join Equality Maryland and the Maryland Coalition for Transgender Equality (MCTE) for a rally to ensure that transgender Marylanders are treated equally under the law.
The rally will take place on Lawyer’s Mall, just outside the legislative buildings and the State House. There will be special guest speakers, and you will be given the opportunity meet with your local legislators to offer support for SB449, The Fairness for All Families Act. This bill, when signed into law, will prevent discrimination against our transgender neighbors and loved ones with regard to housing, employment, credit, and public accommodations. Transgender Marylanders currently do not have these protections and need this legislation to help them live their lives free from discrimination.
Our partners at Equality Maryland and MCTE will provide talking points and all of the information you need to lobby effectively for trans equality.
Maryland PFLAGers, your voice is crucial to the fight for transgender equality. Be there to tell your Representatives that SB449, The Fairness for All Families Act is important to all of our families!
This is also a great opportunity to thank those representatives who were supportive in last year’s successful passage of marriage equality!
