Bedford Embraces Diversity and the Violence Prevention Coalition are co-sponsoring a forum on the Yes on 3 campaign, featuring a speaker from Freedom for All Massachusetts (FFAM), which is spearheading the statewide effort for voting yes on the ballot question. The forum will be held on Wednesday, October 3, at 7:00 pm in the Flint Room at Town Center.

Representative Ken Gordon and Selectman Margot Fleischman will be at the event, along with Kelsey Barowich, coalition organizer for FFAM. Ms. Barowich will give a brief history of the 2016 legislation prohibiting discrimination against transgender people and the challenges to the law since then, as well as information on the ballot question itself and on concrete ways people can get more involved, through canvassing, phone banking, and more.

The Yes on 3 campaign encourages voters to approve ballot question 3 in November, to uphold existing laws protecting transgender people from discrimination in public places, such as movie theaters, restaurants, hospitals, and bathrooms.
