While we cannot directly legislate to prevent such acts, we can legislate to treat trans people with the same level of respect and human dignity that other people take for granted. Protections from discrimination in the workplace, in credit, and in housing -- with full protections in public accommodations -- would be a step forward.
Sadly, Maryland legislators failed to take appropriate action in the previous legislative session when they firstly compromised the Gender Identity Anti-Discrimination Act by removing public accommodation protections and then voted to recommit the bill instead of making it law.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
