The Trevor Project Celebrates Historic Nomination of Dr. Rachel Levine for Assistant Secretary of Health

BY: Kinzi Sparks

Dr. Levine is on track to become the first openly transgender federal official to be confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

Statement from Amit Paley, CEO and Executive Director of The Trevor Project:

“Dr. Rachel Levine is an exemplary public servant who will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the position of Assistant Secretary of Health. Dr. Levine has dedicated much of her career to improving mental health and advocating for LGBTQ youth, and her fearless leadership of Pennsylvania’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has impressed the nation.”

“The Trevor Project congratulates Dr. Levine on this historic nomination and urges the U.S. Senate for a swift confirmation. It will make a world of difference to have a leader at HHS who intimately understands the unique mental health challenges that LGBTQ youth face, as well as the harmful impacts of anti-transgender discrimination in health care and human services.”
