Trans Advocacy in Action: a 100In1Day Event

Saturday, June 3rd, 2017, 12 noon to 4pm
Central Library, mall entrance foyer (1st floor)
55 York Blvd., Hamilton ON
see this event on the 100In1Day website

Healthcare is a human right! Did you know that there are resources available to help every family doctor develop expertise in trans health care, but that many family doctors are not willing to accept some patients because they’re not confident they have the knowledge necessary? That makes it hard for someone who had questions about gender identity or is in the process of transitioning to find a family doctor.

Join the Hamilton Trans Health Coalition for a #100In1Day letter writing campaign. We’ll provide the letter and support with addressing it, and you send that letter to your family doctor to check in with them about whether they are accepting trans patients. Together we can map the family doctors offices in Hamilton offering accessible care and connect doctors who are ready to offer excellent care to all patients with the necessary professional development resources through the Hamilton Trans Health Coalition.

We will mail all letters and invite participants who are able to donate $1 toward the cost of postage. Participants who do not have a family doctor may opt to send a letter to their member of provincial parliament in support of access to health care.

Please share this event on twitter & spread the word.
