SC Equality’s Transgender Inclusion Initiative, known as TransAction South Carolina, continues to grow grassroots engagement and influence state public policy. This initiative has been instrumental in identifying the need for increased transgender education in many of our society’s fundamental institutions.
Our transgender inclusion education efforts have conducted transgender inclusion workshops with major South Carolina employers to training’s at state and federal agencies, law enforcement, health care and the faith community. By creating a broader base of understanding and support from societal institutions which interface with the transgender community. TransAction South Carolina has also been highly engaged in public policy issues, supporting fully inclusive Human Rights Ordinances across South Carolina and the statewide Uniform Non-discrimination Act and the Workforce Fairness Act.
