Advocacy & Allyship: Supporting Transgender Youth

Thursday, March 31, 2022 | 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Adolescence is a tender time full of profound self-discovery. Coming into your own is complicated enough and many transgender youths face extra challenges posed by the attitudes/ideologies of peers and adults, the practices and policies of the institutions in which they engage, and political efforts to strip away rights with abhorrent anti-trans legislation.

On Transgender Day of Visibility, join us for a conversation about the needs and experiences of transgender youth. Information will be shared and ideas will be suggested for how each of us can take steps to create a more caring and inclusive society.

This program is part of the Advocacy & Allyship Series.

Register online to receive Zoom information on the morning of the event. You can also join us during the live stream.
