Civil Rights Legislation

Action Alert (1989)
“Gay people, their friends, family, and supporters have the power to ensure that 1989 will be the year of celebration, not defeat.”

During the third reading of the 1989 Gay Civil Rights Bill, gay and lesbian groups organized rallies to ensure that the bill would not be killed as it was two years before. This newsletter from the Coalition for Lesbian and Gay Civil Rights summarizes the recent history of the bill and encourages individuals and organizations to attend the rally, write letters, and post flyers to exhort the Senate to pass the bill. From the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Political Alliance of Massachusetts records.
