Basic Rights Oregon

Sat, Oct 29, 2011
9:00 AM - 5:30 PM

Trans Justice Summit

With the recent victory with the City of Portland - Oregon is now home to two of the three municipalities in the US who have added trans–inclusive health care for its employees! This is a historic win in the fight to end the discrimination that transgender and gender non-conforming Oregonians face every day in accessing basic health care. And we are not stopping there!

That's why Basic Rights Oregon is hosting a one-day leadership conference to empower trans Oregonians and our allies in our work to end health insurance discrimination. We'll develop a shared strategy to win health care, explore how health care discrimination plays out in our community, and build the skills we need to make Oregon the first state to ban trans health care discrimination.

You can be part of a groundbreaking strategy to make Oregon the first state to ban health insurance discrimination against transgender people.

It's one full day at the Q Center in Portland. Lunch and snacks will be provided for all attendees and participants. Limited space available, register today!

Registration for the all-day event is $10-$20 sliding scale, with scholarships available for attendees. Scholarship deadline is October 12th.
