4:45 PM: Super Heroes and Heroines for Truth, Transformation and Access

For LGBTGNC people of color — like all people
— surviving and thriving requires access to health, wellness and social, economic and racial justice. However, because of the ways in which homophobia and transphobia are intertwined with Corporate, State and Non Profit services, systemic barriers often block access to even the most basic necessities. As part of our collective liberation, access to knowledge and skills that builds infrastructure for communities is a necessity towards building new spaces and systems. This workshop will explore ways we are transforming and/or retelling our own stories and claiming our own practices and traditions to build a path towards our collective wellbeing.

Presenters: Tasha Amezcua, Audre Lorde Project; Pooja Gehi, National Lawyers Guild; Gabriel Foster, Trans Justice Funding Project and special guest Mia Mingus!

Location: Salon A4, Lower Level
