Make History in Massachusetts
I wanted to pass along information I received from Marilyn Wann about a bill pending in Massachusetts. H. 1844 is proposed legislation to make it illegal to discrimination on the basis of weight and height.
If you live in Massachusetts, call your state representative at 617-722-2000. Ask to be directed to your representative based on your zip code. Urge your representative to support this historic legislation.
You can also attend the hearing in Boston on Tuesday, March 25 at 2:00 p.m. It will be at the State House in Room A-2.
If you don't live in Massachusetts, forward this info to anyone you know who does.
Currently, only Michigan, Washington DC, Madison (WI), Santa Cruz (CA), and San Francisco have laws on the books protecting people against size discrimination. You have the chance to make a difference!
