Debates on non-binary gender identities covering topics ranging from bathroom bills and educational curriculum to Sam Smith and Caitlyn Jenner have been grounded in assumptions of a binary biological classification of sex, with the supposition that gender fluidity is fundamentally unsupported by the sex-binary. Except, sex isn’t binary. This presentation will illustrate the differences between the identification of sex and gender and establish that the biological reality of non-binary sex has always been part of humanity.
This grant will utilize funds to make improvements to your home to help reduce monthly utility bills, improve home comfort and home indoor air-quality, as well as eliminate some health and safety issues. An Energy Assessment is performed on the home to determine what upgrades can be done by the grant to lower the energy bills. Upgrades may include attic insulation, air-sealing, duct-sealing, replacement or repair to cooling and heating equipment or water heaters, or replacement of older, non-energy star appliances. The grant pays the cost of the energy assessment and the upgrades.
