November 17, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
In celebration of Transgender Awareness Week, a panel presentation/ discussion has been added to this month’s course.
PANEL DISCUSSION. Joining us are Tami Staas, Executive Director of Arizona Trans Youth and Parent Organization (AZ TYPO) and Eion Cashman, owner of
YBinary. We will hear about issues the transgender community face, challenges faced by our trans youth, and how to provide a supportive environment and
space for LGBTQ+ persons.
FILM SYNOPSIS: The majority of the victims of hate violence homicides in the United States are transgender women. Transgender people of color are six times more likely to experience physical violence from the police. Shelly “Treasure” Hillard, a young African American transwoman, died violently in 2011. She is one of many, and this is her story.
