Labor Pushes to Improve Transgender Healthcare Access(Metropolitan Washington Council, AFL-CIO)The AFL-CIO’s Pride at Work and SEIU are teaming up with the DC Trans Coalition to raise awareness about the importance of covering transgender heathcare needs. Last month over 200 activists joined the DC Trans Coalition and local and national labor groups in celebrating a Month of Action for Trans Health Care with a rally in Columbia Heights, while similar actions took place across the country. “Transgender people are among the organized and organizable workers of America,” says DC Trans Coalition’s Andy Bowen. “It’s time to improve health care access for transgender people, and unions, which negotiate their members’ medical benefits, play an important role in this work.” - photos: rally for trans health in Columbia Heights; photos by Tyler Keegan Grigsby
