Public Comments

Howard Brown Health has been advocating for the health and wellness of LGBTQ people and other marginalized communities since 1974. One way that Howard Brown does this advocacy work is by submitting public comments and testimonies to city, state, and federal government agencies. We leverage the expertise of our staff, patients, and community to provide public comments and recommendations on a wide variety of policy priorities and initiatives, including: equitable insurance and healthcare access, community health center funding, HIV services, trans-affirming care, LGBTQ non-discrimination, racial justice, sexual and reproductive health, and more. Below is an archive of Howard Brown’s public comments and testimonies to government agencies regarding policies and initiatives to advance health equity. If you have questions about any of these comments, please feel free to contact Tim Wang, Director of Policy and Advocacy, at
