Our Purpose

The purpose of Gender Rights Maryland is to promote civil rights, education, tolerance, equality and acceptance on the basis of sex and gender identity/expression in the State of Maryland.

Gender Rights Maryland’s legislative goal for 2012-2013 is to see the passage of a comprehensive gender identity anti‐discrimination law in Prince Georges County, MD and the passage of statewide legislation consistent with Federal gender identity policy and law in Maryland before the end of the 2013 legislative session.

This purpose is accomplished by the existence of two non-profit corporations. A 501(c)4 which focuses on political and legislative issues and a 501(c)3 which focuses on Education, Outreach, Advocacy and Information distribution.
