Trans Justice Summit 2012

Pre-registration is closed, but limited registration will be available at the door.

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.

Click here for our exciting schedule of workshops and descriptions - ranging from "How a Bill Becomes a Law" to "Self Defense" to "Dismantling Racism in Queer and Trans Community," there's something for everyone! And learn more about our incredible keynote speaker, Kylar Broadus.
