Sips & Scholars-A liberating conversation of Trans Navigation through both life and education
November 10, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm EST
This event aims to create a dialogue of shared experiences faced by individuals of the transgender community. Realities of anti-transgender violence, harassment, discrimination, HIV, Poverty, Lack of Legal Protection, barriers to healthcare and others the impact the social , physical and mental well-being of many transgender individuals in America has become too common. By creating an opportunity for transgender individuals from various walks of life and many regions of this county, T-Time, allows an opportunity for an open dialogue to create cross regional peer to peer support, best practices and lessons learned, vital to the success, and empowerment of transgender persons nationwide.
Keynote Speaker Marquise Vilson and other local Transgender advocates will have an opportunity to address a captivated audience to provide a framework for success to transgender individuals and allies in attendance. As we approach Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR), this event serves as not just a time to remember trans persons that have lost their lives to violence, but create opportunities for networking and dialogue to begin to create systems of success for a marginalized community.Follow Shannon Garcon:
