Gender Marker Hearing September 10

Sep 4, 2019

A bill pending in the State Legislature (H.3664/S.2203) would allow residents to choose a non-binary 'X' gender marker on driver’s licenses, birth certificates or other state-issued ID. A hearing on the bill is scheduled for Tuesday, September 10 at 10:30 am in the Gardner Auditorium at the State House. 

This is one of MassEquality's top priorities this session. Many thanks to all the volunteers and advocates who pressed for this hearing! Here's what you can do now:

  • Submit testimony: Write a short statement about why you support Massachusetts residents having the option to designate 'X' on their IDs rather than 'Male' or 'Female'. Send that to Rep. Mindy Domb at Mindy.Domb@mahouse.gov or by snail mail to: Representative Mindy Domb, State House, 24 Beacon Street, Room 134, Boston, MA 02133   
  • Attend the hearing simply to be counted among those who care about this issue.
  • Present oral testimony: Sign up to testify for up to 3 minutes by contacting Rep. Domb's office at: Mindy.Domb@mahouse.gov or (617) 722-2400
  • Contact members of the Joint Committee for State Administration and Regulatory Oversight encouraging them to report the bill favorably out of committee. Joint committees have both senators and representatives, but the priority now is to contact the Representativeson the committee.
