Smile Politely

Trans* rights demonstration

The Board of Trustees at U of I will be voting on the final student insurance plan on March 6th. Community members are encouraged to attend a demonstration which will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. on at the Diana Fountain (by the Union). 

The proposed health care changes will approximate $2.55 per semester per student to go toward hormone therapy and gender confirmation surgery (which are the only known treatments for those with body dysphoria). The rest of the increase in costs includes eye care, dental, and bariatric surgery for all attending students (graduate and undergraduate). 

Come show support to ensure a truly Inclusive Illinois!
