State Senator Diana DiZoglio (D-Methuen) will be joined by journalist, author and empowerment advocate Gretchen Carlson and political strategist Julie Roginsky, both of the advocacy group Lift Our Voices, for a State House press conference on Monday, January 27, regarding the continued use of non-disclosure agreements in cases of harassment, discrimination and assault in state government and across Massachusetts.
Lift Our Voices was founded by Carlson, Julie Roginsky and Diana Falzone in an effort to end the practice of mandatory NDAs, confidentiality provisions and forced arbitration clauses that seek to silence workers who want to speak publicly about toxic workplace conditions. Carlson and Roginsky both sued former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes for sexual harassment, while Falzone sued Fox News for gender discrimination.
“It is beyond past time that the abuse of non-disclosure agreements come to an end in the Commonwealth,” said DiZoglio. “I am beyond grateful to be joined by Gretchen Carlson and Julie Roginsky, who have tirelessly worked to raise awareness around these issues.”
Also speaking at the press conference will be attorney Mitchell Garabedian and State Representative Alyson Sullivan (R-Abington).
The event is open to the public.
