All Blood is Equal

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.
