As a member of the Maryland Coalition for Trans Equality, the ACLU of Maryland is proud to support Senate Bill 449 (SB 449), the Fairness for All Marylanders Act of 2013 - which would prohibit discrimination based on gender identity and expression in employment, housing, and public accomodations.


According to a Gonzales poll taken in August 2006, more than half of Maryland voters favor making it illegal in Maryland to discriminate against transgender people.
