Last weekend, Transgender Law Center and Trans Justice Funding Project proudly hosted a National Training Institute for a cohort of transgender and gender nonconforming leaders from 11 states facing anti-trans legislation. After two packed and inspiring days of training, strategizing, and connection, we’re excited to continue working with and expanding this cohort to build a national movement of TGNC leaders to take on these immediate attacks AND fight for a long-term vision of liberation for all of our communities.
Videos and lessons from this weekend coming soon!
