"The Benefits of Equality Toolkit"

We are proud to announce the 2nd edition of our groundbreaking resource: "The Benefits of Equality: A Blueprint for Inclusive Health Care for Transgender Workers."

Created by Basic Rights Oregon's Trans Justice team and the Trans Justice Working Group, this toolkit has proven to be a definitive resource for moving gender-affirming health care in the workplace. Transgender people are often denied coverage for basic, medically necessary care simply because they are transgender. This includes many services that are covered for cisgender (non-transgender) people: cancer screenings, mental health care, hormone therapy and surgical care. "The Benefits of Equality" is a tool to help remove these discriminatory exclusions.
