Human Rights Campaign Praises New Hampshire Vote on Gender Identity Protections

There are 3 comments on the gay_blog.blogspot.com story from Apr 9, 2009, titled Human Rights Campaign Praises New Hampshire Vote on Gender Identity Protections. In it, gay_blog.blogspot.com reports that:

The Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization, praised the New Hampshire State House of Representatives for its 188-187 vote today in favor of legislation updating existing anti-discrimination and hate crimes laws to cover gender identity. House Bill 415, which now moves to the Senate, would add gender identity and gender expression protections to the state’s anti-discrimination statutes and would also update state hate crimes law to ensure that perpetrators of hate crimes against transgender people are subject to the same extended sentencing terms as perpetrators of hate crimes based on other prohibited bases, such as race, religion, sex and sexual orientation. “We applaud the New Hampshire’s House of Representatives for voting to update existing anti-discrimination and hate crimes laws to include protections for gender identity or expression,” said Human Rights Campaign President Joe Solmonese. “We congratulate Representatives Ed Butler and Barbara Richardson for their leadership in sponsoring this bill in the House, as well as GLAD, PFLAG New Hampshire, and the many activists, including HRC members, who have been working to build support for this bill. This legislation is simply about making sure that everyone in New Hampshire receives equal protection under the law. We hope that this bill will pass the Senate and these important protections will be enacted into law.”
