TransLife: Builidng Our Community
The transgender community, their loved ones and family are welcome to join us for this inaugural community event! Get information on legal issues, advocacy, and networking opportunities geared specifically for the transgender community, with hands-on resources you can use right away. Representatives from multiple organizations will be on hand with information on social, legal, economic and health services available to you. We’ve also built in some fun social opportunities to help you get to know your community.
You’ll leave with a new appreciation of the diversity and strength of the transgender community and immediate connections to resources and support.
This is an inclusive space for anyone on the transgender spectrum or questioning. This umbrella includes individuals who identify as transgender, genderqueer, gender fluid, or questioning. We welcome you at where you are at in your journey.
Includes lunch. We’ll have Spanish interpretation services onsite, too.
Please note: This event is to foster community building within the transgender community. There will be no services for professionals at this conference. Please let us know if you are interested in a professional conference. One may be planned in the near future.
