Help Bring Non-Discrimination Protections to Your Town

In the cities that have passed municipal transgender non-discrimination protections, many of those policies were first proposed by everyday residents.

Municipal Leaders Speaking Out

"The strong position that the city of Keene and the City Council takes in regard to gender identity I think is incredibly important, both locally and at the state level." Mayor Kendall Lane Keene
"We don’t discriminate on any grounds. We wouldn’t discriminate against a transgender person regardless (of the policy)." Interim City Manager Paula Maville Lebanon
"Portsmouth has been a longtime leader in supporting equality for our citizens. It’s simply unfair to discriminate against transgender residents." Assistant Mayor Jim Splaine Portsmouth
"I am proud of the history this community has in welcoming all and reaffirming those values by twice electing the first openly gay mayor in N.H. history and this evening adding gender identity to its pledge against discrimination." Mayor Dana Hilliard Somersworth
