ALERT: Office of Human Rights threatening our Rights! Take Action!

URGENT ALERT: We just discovered that last Friday, July 11th, an announcement of the OHR’s intent to undermine parts of the Human Rights Act that the Coalition won was entered into the DC Register. You can read the proposal here.Why are the Office of Human Rights and the Commission on Human Rights trying to REPEAL our Human Rights instead of defending them? This is outrageous!

Contact the DC Office of Human Rights to demand that they uphold our rights, not gut them. Email ohr@dc.gov or call (202) 727-0656 to ask why this proposed rulemaking has been entered.

Formal responses: To comment on the subject matter of this proposed rulemaking, submit comments in writing to Alexis Taylor, General Counsel at the DC Office of Human Rights 441 4th Street, NW, Suite 570 North, Washington, DC 20001 . The DCTC will also be collecting people’s comments and submitting them to the General Counsel. DEADLINE for this submission is August 11, 2008. If you do write the OHR, cc us at dctranscoalition@gmail.com so we can follow up on your comments during the public hearing.

Stay tuned for more events and actions as we work to defend our rights…
