Board Action Regarding Transgender Inclusion

In a unanimous decision on Wednesday night, the Board of Directors of the Florida GLBT Democratic Caucus directed the Bylaws Committee to seek input and provide recommendations for changes to the organization’s bylaws, including membership forms, policies, and procedures, that foster a more inclusive environment for transgender Democrats in Florida.

“We will be reviewing all language we use relating to gender in order to make sure we are fully inclusive and representing the entire spectrum of the GLBT community,” said¬†Caucus President Sally Phillips. “Thanks to Terri Sharp for helping us start this important conversation.”

Additionally, a breakout session has been scheduled during the organization’s membership meeting in February to seek additional input about this important issue from members representing chapters all over the state.
