Transgender Anti-Discrimination Law Protected

Today Maryland’s highest court ruled in favor of Lambda Legal and against a referendum petition that threatened to block a transgender anti–discrimination law in Montgomery County. In order to address discrimination against transgender individuals, the Montgomery County Council unanimously passed an act in 2007 that added gender identity to the county’s civil rights law.

Lambda Legal, together with Equality Maryland, represented concerned Montgomery County registered voters. We are very proud that we successfully protected this important anti–discrimination law.
