Report-back on Trans Lobby Day

Masen Davis, executive director of the Transgender Law Center, will recount highlights from the recent Transgender Lobby Day in Washington, D.C. during a forum Wednesday, April 30 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the LGBT Community Center, 1800 Market Street in San Francisco.

The lobby day, sponsored by the National Center for Transgender Equality, was held April 15. Members of Congress from more than 28 states received visits from transgender people and allies who talked with them about the need for employment protections, hate crime legislation, and the need for privacy and documentation rights.

Wednesday’s forum is presented by United ENDA California Coalition, which was formed last fall during the brouhaha over the stripping gender identity from the federal Employment Non-Discrimination Act. The House passed a sexual orientation-only version of ENDA, but the issue has stalled in the Senate.
