Champions of Change
Andrew Cray was a policy analyst at the Center for American Progress. He is being honored posthumously for his work to connect lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans with comprehensive and affordable health insurance. While at the Center for American Progress, Andrew helped launch Out2Enroll, a collaborative effort with the Sellers Dorsey Foundation and the Federal Agencies Project designed to connect LGBT Americans with their new coverage options under the Affordable Care Act. Andrew also worked with the Department of Health and Human Services to ensure that the transgender community was protected in the ACA’s non-discrimination provisions and worked with various state governments to remove discriminatory exclusions from health insurance plans.
