Maura Healey’s game-changing contributions at the helm of two prominent divisions of the attorney general’s office — the Business & Labor and Public Protection & Advocacy Bureaus — helped make the office a state and national powerhouse.
- Healey was the architect of the of the Commonwealth’s landmark challenge to the Defense of Marriage Act and led the winning argument of the nation’s first lawsuit striking it down. She and her team filed briefs in the Supreme Court marriage equality cases that declared DOMA unconstitutional and overturned California’s marriage ban.
- Maura and her team were instrumental in securing statewide non-discrimination protections in Massachusetts for transgender people in employment, housing, education, credit and hate crimes.
- She has worked extensively to combat bullying in the Commonwealth’s schools, to train law enforcement on best practices in preventing hate crimes.
