Transgender Awareness Month: Trans Wellness, Equity and Health
Wed, Nov 18 / 5:00 pm PST
In honor of Transgender Awareness Month, join a dynamic post-election discussion with trans leaders and advocates on the fight for trans rights. The event also includes an important discussion on trans health equity and wellness in the time of COVID and beyond.
Trans and gender nonconforming communities—especially trans communities of color—continue to be disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, with increased needs for inclusive and community-led services and solutions.
Kicking off with remarks by San Francisco Mayor London Breed, our host and panelists include Akira Jackson, Aria Sa’id, Nicole Santamaria, Clair Farley, Maceo Persson, Michelle Meow,
Get information and learn how to support essential community services, including housing, mutual aid programs, employment, and more. Learn how people can improve trans health care, testing and mental health services in a time of COVID. Learn strategies to address the increased anti-trans violence and systemic racism in our communities. Find out how allies can get involved and support trans rights.
Come learn how you can take action and get involved during Trans Month and beyond.
