Act Now: Tell the Biden-Harris Administration to Protect Trans Health!

By: 

Breaking news: The Biden-Harris administration has finally released a new proposed rule that takes major steps forward to protect trans people from health care discrimination! Trans people - and especially trans youth - have faced vicious recent attacks. Everyone should have access to safe and affirming medical care - and no one should have to face discrimination at the doctor’s office. During the public comment period, you can make a difference.  

We've teamed up with Transgender Law Center (TLC) and Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund (TLDEF), with support from 82 other organizations around the country to launch the next phase of the Protect Trans Health campaign. The new rule relates to Section 1557, which is the part of the Affordable Care Act that prohibits discrimination in health care. The law itself already exists - and discrimination is already illegal – but trans people are still facing discrimination from doctors and insurance companies. The proposed rule helps strengthen our protections and enforce the law. Now, you can leave a comment which supports the new rule. You’ll find tips and ideas on sharing your story on protecttranshealth.org, and you can also share your comment on social media with #ProtectTransHealth.  

Make your voice heard. Say NO to discrimination and YES to equal health care! 

Here’s what to do:
