|COPE National has adopted a resolution to support the campaign to end the “blood ban” at Canadian Blood Services (CBS). Currently CBS discriminates against gay men and trans women from donating blood. |
The blood ban is not based on science, just old discriminatory ideas. All blood in Canada is tested and is safe.

COPE National President, David Black, has sent a letter calling for support from our local and our members. We are asking members to visit the above website and add your voice to end this discrimination; share the campaign with your friends, family, neighbours and fellow allies; and consider making a donation to the campaign so they can do more public outreach.
The link to the campaign is also available on COPE 491’s facebook group.
