On December 21st, a letter was sent to HHS Acting Secretary Eric Hargan & CDC Director Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald regarding the media reports of restrictions on the use of certain language (including “transgender” and "diversity") in CDC’s FY 2019 budget documents.
Pacific Pride Foundation and dozens of healthcare organizations and other concerned institutions signed the letter emphasizing the ramifications this could have for our country. We are proud to be a part of this large, robust and dignified list to directly encourage appropriate, established and clear language in explaining the important work of CDC’s and HHS's programs.
