New Hampshire Residents Celebrate Huge Victory for Transgender Protections
It’s been an exciting month for the fight for LGBTQ-inclusive nondiscrimination! On Friday, June 8, Republican Governor of New Hampshire Chris Sununu signed into law comprehensive and explicit protections from discrimination based on gender identity, ensuring that transgender people are protected from discrimination in employment, housing, and public accommodations.
Three years ago Freedom for All Americans Education Fund recognized an opportunity in the Granite State to help coordinate a powerful statewide conversation around the lack of protections for transgender people. Since then the Freedom New Hampshire campaign has centered the voices of transgender people, who shared their stories and provided their neighbors and representatives a chance to get to know who transgender people are, often for the first time.
These are the conversations that improve lives. These are the conversations that helped ensure that no person in New Hampshire faces discrimination because of who they are.
We’re grateful for everyone who spoke out for #TransLawNH in New Hampshire. Meet just a few of them and read their full stories below:
