FAIRNESS WEST VIRGINIA UPDATE
“Too many transgender people in West Virginia can't access the healthcare they need. We're working to fix that. We launched an interactive health guide for transgender people across our state, and we're adding more providers and clinics each month!” Check out the guide at fairnesswv.org/transhealthguide/.
Fairness also wants to hear stories: “Calling all LGBTQ people in West Virginia: Have you faced discrimination because of your sexual orientation or gender identity? If so, we want to hear your story! Unfortunately, too many people still don’t believe LGBTQ people face discrimination in the year 2020. Share your story with us so we can fight for bills like the Fairness Act.” Share your story at fairnesswv.org/stories/
