Make Your Year-End Gift for Equality Today!

Dear Friend,

Donate Now button2018 is nearly over, and everyone's thinking about their resolutions, setting goals and making plans for the new year. Here at MassEquality, we're doing the same. It's been an eventful year in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and we're preparing to meet even more challenges in 2019. Will you join us by helping us meet our year-end fundraising goal?

Your generous donation will ensure that we'll be ready to take action on a host of issues critical to our communities in 2019, including:

  • Fighting to make sure that LGBTQ young people are no longer subjected to dangerous and discredited conversion therapy practices in Massachusetts.
  • Enabling people to choose an “X” gender marker on state identification documents, so nonbinary people's identities will be accurately reflected on their ID cards.
  • Opposing right-wing attempts to weaken or repeal LGBTQ rights laws, especially those impacting transgender people.
  • Supporting the ongoing fight against HIV/AIDS, and ensuring our communities are included in public health data collection.
  • Repealing archaic sodomy laws that could threaten the LGBTQ community in the future.
  • Advocating for LGBTQ youth to receive medically accurate and comprehensive health education and improved access to health care.
  • And much more...

This coming year promises to be an important one for LGBTQ rights, both here in Massachusetts and across the country. Please join us today so we can continue our fight for fairness and equality in 2019! Whether you can give $10 or $10,000, every gift moves us closer to achieving our goal and puts us in a stronger position to meet the challenges that our community will face in the year ahead.

Now it’s up to us to make sure that MassEquality has the resources to keep up its life-changing public education and advocacy work in 2019. Please join me in supporting MassEquality today!
