Instead of our regularly schedule general body meeting, please join the BLM fam this Saturday at TNTJ’s Trans-Identities Teach-IN (FREE EVENT). We think this is extremely important to attend because ALL black lives matter!! Please find information below. See you there!
The Tennessee Trans Journey Project, in association with the Nashville Human Rights Campaign and the Vanderbilt Students of Nonviolence, is presenting a Teach-In on Trans Identities at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, in Furman Hall, Room 114. Our keynote speaker will be Dr. Erin Swenson. (http://erinswenson.com/info/biography.html) Dr. Swenson will be presenting her talk, “If Anybody Asks You Who I Am: Confessions of a Transgender Troublemaker.”
There will be presentations introducing trans identities, both binary and nonbinary, challenges facing the trans community, intersectionality and black trans women, trans healthcare issues and allyship both individual and institutional, as well as a panel discussion with the presenters. There will be catering with vegan and kosher options.
There is no cost for the event, though donations to TNTJ will be gladly accepted.
