This series includes papers from various organizations with which Jones worked.
This series is divided into three subseries:
- Subseries A: Transgender Civil Rights Implementation Task Force
- Subseries B: Human Rights Coalition
- Subseries C: Transgender Political Caucus
The Transgender Civil Rights Implementation Task Force was established in 2000 to follow up on a 1994 Human Rights Commission
investigation into discrimination and civil rights’ violations against the transgender community. The Commission set forth
30 recommendations that, as of 2000, were found to be largely unimplemented. 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.
