Volunteer with Freedom for All Massachusetts

Right now, our state’s nondiscrimination laws protect transgender people from discrimination in public spaces, but they’re under attack and facing a potential repeal at the ballot this November, which means we will be the first state in the country to vote on transgender rights. You can get involved in multiple ways: signing a postcard in support of the law, donations, and volunteer opportunities (to collect postcards, phonebank, canvass, etc). On Mondays there is a Volunteer Recruitment Phone Bank from 6-9pm, on Tuesdays, a Public Education Phone Bank from 6-9pm, and on Saturdays there is a Public Education Canvass from 10am-3pm. All are held at Christ Church United in Lowell. Other events, such as tabling and gathering signatures of support, change from time to time, so if you are interested in that, please e-mail Zachary Stinchfield at

Nobody is above the law! Donald Trump is publicly considering firing special counsel Robert Mueller. This would be a constitutional crisis for our country. Our response in the minutes and hours following a power grab will dictate what happens next, which is why an immediate response is imperative.
