Activists from the DC Trans Coalition hand-delivered over 200 petition signatures and comments from the online petition, in addition to formal commentary from the Coalition and comments from the Silvia Rivera Law Project in New York.
Many organizations and individuals made powerful statements to demand that the Office of Human Rights drop their proposed changes.
The DC Commission on Human Rights meets Thursday, September 11 at 6pm.
The meeting will be held at 441 4th Street, Suite 570 North, Washington, DC.
Call the Human Rights Commission’s office at (202) 727-0656 for room location and additional information.
These meetings are open to the public, and it would be a good time to let the Commission know your thoughts about their proposed changes to the Human Rights Act!
