City leaders made history last month with the announcement of a plan to expand Healthy SF coverage to transgender individuals. But while the decision was monumental, it did not mark the end of the battle for inclusive health care. The fight will continue this March through the Transgender Month of Action, a campaign urging unions, labor councils and state federations to bargain for inclusive health benefits for transgender individuals. San Francisco is one of ten U.S. cities included in the event's nationwide launch.
