The resulting Task Force was established by the Board of Supervisors of the City and County of San Francisco. The Task Force was influential in passage of the first Employee Health Benefits Plan inclusive of transgender care. Jones was a member of the committee for its duration, and co-chair of the committee from September, 2000 until its completion in September 2002. Papers are arranged by date, when known. Papers from the Human Rights Commission, which performed the original investigation into transgender civil rights. Includes the preliminary report urging the city of San Francisco to include health benefits for transgender city employees, documentation produced by the HRC in response to the original investigation into transgender civil rights violations, a letter to the editor regarding the obituary of Gloria Hemingway, and the second page of a letter requesting the appointment of the first full-time transgender advocate in the HRC (Marcus Arana). This subseries includes the papers documenting the Transgender Political Caucus’ action interviewing political candidates about their stance on transgender issues, and the resulting endorsement posters.
