2012 Transgender Justice Summit

October 20, 2012 @ 9:00 am - October 21, 2012 @ 5:00 pm


Join us for a two-day leadership summit hosted by Basic Rights Oregon and the Portland State University Queer Resource Center! The weekend will empower trans Oregonians and our allies in our work to build a strong movement for Trans Justice statewide. We’ll share our victories and lessons learned, explore how health care discrimination plays out in our community, and build the skills we need to win the struggles ahead.

In addition to trainings on topics ranging from “how to lobby decision makers” to “dismantling racism within the trans community,” this year’s summit will include workshops on personal needs and how to access trans-friendly services.
