Making History with Cultural Competency

Post date: Mar 26, 2016 4:42:45 PM

Rainbow Response Coalition is proud of the collaboration of the DC Council, the LGBTQ community and our allies in passing ground breaking legislation to ensure that all licensed healthcare providers in DC receive cultural competency training on LGBTQ issues: http://lims.dccouncil.us/Legislation/B21-0168?FromSearchResults=true. This legislation is the first of its kind in the nation. We applaud the work of all the agencies, organizations and individuals that worked tirelessly to protect LGBTQ patients and clients and to make sure they receive the highest quality of healthcare.

We feel privileged to live in a city that continues to lead the country in passing inclusive and progressive laws to protect all of its citizens. We hope this type of legislation will be a beacon for other cities to follow.
