La Lucha Da Energía (The Struggle Gives You Energy): Our Experiences as Trans Women of Color and the Journey Toward Liberation FULL
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

This workshop intends to highlight the exclusion trans women of color face in all aspects of society and how this exclusion has created generations of activists mobilizing for their communities’ survival. This teach-in session will include story sharing from grassroots trans LA based organizers, an overview of the issues trans people are currently and have historically faced, and will generate a group discussion on creating more trans-inclusive spaces.

Our session is open to ALL, but intended to amplify the voices of trans women of color. This will be a POC, trans, and gender non-conforming affirming space. All genders, expressions, presentations and sexualities are welcome. The safety and comfort of marginalized people will be prioritized.
