Advocacy and Allyship: Responding to Resurgent Assaults on Gender and Sexual Diversity, with Fae Johnstone

March 26 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Come to the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work or join virtually on March 26 for “Advocacy and Allyship: Responding to Resurgent Assaults on Gender and Sexual Diversity,” with Fae Johnstone.

ABOUT THE EVENT: Trans people, trans health care, trans rights, and trans kids are being targeting by hate movements that spread misinformation and fear. It is vital, now more than ever, for cisgender queers to stand in solidarity with the trans community, as this ultimately affects ALL of us, directly or indirectly. How can we best advocate for trans rights?

DATE & TIME: March 26 at 5:30pm
LOCATION: Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work, Room 422 — or online via Zoom

All are welcome!
