Keshet is working with secular LGBTQ+ rights organizations and Jewish organizations to fight for LGBTQ+ equality in Florida. Along with local synagogues, we are working with Equality Florida to mobilize Jewish communities for LGBTQ+ rights. To get involved in Florida, sign up here.
(IN PERSON) Protect Transgender Healthcare from the Florida Board of Medicine
The Florida Board of Medicine and Board of Osteopathy are in the process of passing rules banning puberty blockers, hormone replacement therapy, and surgical treatments that “alter primary or secondary sexual characteristics” for youth, and will punish healthcare providers who offer them. As Jews, we are tasked with upholding the dignity of every human being, so we are gathering to share public comments with the Boards. Join us, and we can show elected officials that people of faith support LGBTQ+ rights.

(VIRTUAL) Florida LGBTQ+ Legislative Information Session
Learn more about the bills that affect us the most, what these bills actually mean, and what we as LGBTQ+ Jews and allies can do to fight them at our Florida information session. The session begins in Tallahassee on March 7 and ends only two months later on May 5, and it is important to act swiftly and respond to attacks on our community. Our Jewish tradition compels us to pursue justice, and together, we can make our voices heard and advocate against those seeking to harm us.
