Transgender people face the most basic and blatant discrimination every day - from being denied access to employment, housing, or healthcare, to being physically attacked because of the way they look or dress. Through the Transgender Rights Project, GLAD puts our litigation, legislative, and educational assets to work in a focused way to establish clear legal protections for the transgender community. Join us to learn more!

Press Pass Tv is a non profit organization that is dedicated to telling the stories of the community using film. Four young Black women were shot Sunday night August 12th while they sat in their car parked on Harlem Street in Boston. We went to Dorchester to talk to community members about how we can help stop the violence in our community. We hope that you will be able to share this story with other people who believe that it is time for a change, especially here in Boston.
