Media: Yes on 3
A group of advocates for survivors of domestic and sexual violence gathered to speak about their support for civil rights protections for transgender people.
In the leadup to Election Day, local news outlets persistently covered Question 3, which upheld a 2016 law that gives transgender people antidiscrimination protections in places of public accommodation. BARCC, which advocated for the Yes on 3 campaign, was quoted several times making the point that protecting transgender people has no negative consequences on public safety. A sample of that news coverage is listed below:
Taylor Rapalyea serves as BARCC's marketing and communications coordinator. She helps implement communications plans, creates content, and provides support for organizational communications, all to further public knowledge of BARCC's mission and services. Taylor brings four years of local news reporting and editing to BARCC, and has worked at Patch News, the Salem News, and the Gloucester Daily Times. She learned video reporting and editing at the Boston Herald, and served as editor of the Simmons Voice while studying journalism and public relations at Simmons College.
