Commitment to the LGBTQIA+ Community

Andrea has been and will continue to be a strong advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community. She has dedicated her life and career to fighting discrimination in all forms, and will work to ensure that Massachusetts remains a welcoming and safe place for its LGBTQIA+ residents as Attorney General by:

  • Using the powers of the Attorney General’s office, including the Civil Rights division, to combat discrimination based on someone’s sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.
  • Naming a liaison to the LGBTQIA+ community so that it has a direct line to her office.
  • While other states are taking steps to restrict the rights of transgender individuals, Andrea is committed to shielding them from hatred in all its forms. She will protect transgender individuals from discrimination in all areas, including public accommodations, housing, education, health care (including gender-affirming care), and employment.
  • Ensuring that LGBTQIA+ youth know that they are loved and supported by the Attorney General’s Office. Andrea will guarantee that our schools are safe spaces for LGBTQIA+ youth.
