Human Rights Campaign responded to news that First Lady Dr. Jill Biden is visiting D.C.-based community health center and clinic Whitman-Walker Health.

By prioritizing the foremost LGBTQ community health center in Washington, D.C. as one of her first public visits, First Lady Dr. Jill Biden has highlighted that the health and wellness of our community is a top priority. For decades, Whitman-Walker Health has provided crucial services and support to LGBTQ people and people living with HIV and AIDS. Today, they serve as one of the critical resources for our nation's capital as we combat COVID-19. Dr. Biden’s visit proves she and the Biden administration understand the importance of providing resources to LGBTQ focused health centers and addressing health disparities among the most vulnerable. From Day One, the President and the First Lady’s commitment to taking immediate action to improve the lives of LGBTQ people has been a welcome breath of fresh air.

Alphonso David, President of the Human Rights Campaign
