Review for Equality Florida, Inc., St. Petersburg, FL, USA
As an LCSW who specializes in addressing the mental health needs of transgender youth, I am so grateful for the work Equality Florida does in attacking issues on the macro level. Policy can play a critical role, for better or worse, in the mental health and overall well-being of LGBTQ people. Equality Florida works tirelessly to not only neutralize the pervasive atmosphere of hostility experienced by many LGBTQ people as a result of discriminatory public policy but also to create an atmosphere of affirmation and support by advocating for overtly LGBTQ-positive public policy. When I volunteer for Equality Florida as a citizen lobbyist, I know it is perhaps one of the most important long term ways I can help my clients. I cannot overstate the importance of their work.
