LGBTQ+ Equality Caucus asks HHS to bolster protections for transgender health

ICYMI: LEADING MEDICAL ORGANIZATIONS CALL FOR ACTION TO COUNTER THREATS, ABUSIVE BEHAVIOR TARGETING HEALTH CARE FACILITIES, WORKERS AND FAMILIES: “This situation requires a coordinated effort from local, state and federal authorities. And it should be a wake-up call for the tech companies that have done far too little, far too slowly, to address the wave of focused hate and disinformation on their social media platforms,” said HRC Senior Vice President for Programs, Research and Training Jay Brown (@ThisIsJayBrown, he/him).“This is having a chilling effect on life-saving and evidence-based care – care that improves mental health outcomes and leads to a better quality of life for those who receive it.” More from HRC.
