Gender Identity & The Law: Public Accommodations Training Materials

Effective Oct. 1, 2016, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts prohibits discrimination based on gender identity in places of public accommodation.  A place of public accommodation as defined in M.G.L.c. 272 s. 92A, includes any place open to and serving the public. On June 13, 2019, the Cambridge Human Rights Commission and the City of Cambridge's LGBTQ+ Commission conducted a training for businesses on understanding this update to the law.  Click here to learn more about how businesses can comply with the state’s gender identity non-discrimination law in places of public accommodation. In addition, the training covered best practices for maintaining inclusive environments regardless of one’s gender identity. Click here for Resource List for local businesses.
