Legislative Committee

The Legislative Committee is in charge of the Mass LGBTQ Bar’s legislative outreach and advocacy. Passage of the Massachusetts Transgender Equal Rights Bill (H502/S76) is a priority for the Mass LGBTQ Bar this legislative session. As such, the Legislative Committee is focused on building support in the legal community for this bill. In addition, the Mass LGBTQ Bar is also strongly supportive of H1862 "An Act Providing Housing and Support Services for Unaccompanied Homeless Youth.” Studies show that LGBTQ youth are disproportionately homeless and it appears that LGBTQ youth are even more disproportionately represented among those who are both homeless and unaccompanied. Whether you want to try your hand at influencing legislation for the first time or you've been pushing legislation for years, the Legislative Committee welcomes you.  If you like public speaking, learn to testify in front of a committee of legislators.  If you like writing, craft fact sheets and other persuasive materials for voters and legislators alike.  The Legislative Committee is chaired by Jamie Hoag (jamiehoag@gmail.com).
