Congratulations President Biden and Vice President Harris - equality & equity in leadership is here!
LGBT Senior Housing and Care Congratulates our 46th President of the United States Joseph R Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on their historic inauguration. Their work began on inauguration day even before the celebrations had concluded.
One of the many executives orders President Biden signed shortly after his inauguration that roll back Trump Administration policies, enforces Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to require that the federal government does not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.
Prior to inauguration day Biden selected Dr. Rachel Levine as Assistant Deputy for the Health and Human Services agency (HHS.) Levin is Pennsylvania’s top health official, a pediatrician, and the first transgender person nomination to a cabinet post. Dr. Levin has openly discussed the transphobia and harassment targeted at her. For more on Dr. Levin’s experience with intolerance and her commitment to the LGBTQ+ community, view her press conference held in PA, July 2020 at, https://www.washingtonpost.com/health/2021/01/19/rachel-levine-transgender-biden-hhs-pick/.
President Biden as quoted in the Washington Post article, “Dr. Rachel Levine will bring the steady leadership and essential expertise we need to get people through this pandemic — no matter their zip code, race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability — and meet the public health needs of our country in this critical moment and beyond.”
Thank you President Biden and Vice President Harris for your commitment to and caring about the LGBTQ+ community!
