Admiral Rachel Levine calls hate a public health threat

As the White House implements a new strategy (first announced in June) to address anti-LGBTQ+ violence and discriminatory laws, Admiral Rachel Levine, assistant secretary for health at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, says “hate — whether fueled by homophobia, transphobia, or racism — is a public health threat.” Levine’s declaration comes as stakeholders in the Biden administration’s plan to implement a new Community Safety Partnership, providing resources to local LGBTQ+ community organizations to help prevent and respond to threats. Those threats “violate our most basic values and freedoms as Americans,” the Biden administration said when announcing the new initiative at the start of Pride Month this year.
