Trans Equity Summit
The 2020 Trans Equity Summit will be Sept. 13-15, virtually, 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. daily. Programming will include breakout sessions, performances, a job and resource fair, and healing justice offerings. This year's theme is "Claiming Our Power for Change: Caring for Community." Register now and share the Facebook event here.
In this moment of deep pain and radical possibility, Minneapolis has been centered – globally – as a place from which potential new futures can be born. Organizers, healers and artists are redefining community, connection, and the expansiveness of their own power. As always, trans and gender non-conforming folks are leading, and it is with this knowledge that we offer this year’s Summit. The 7th annual Trans Equity Summit will hold space for community care, for collective witnessing, and for trans/GNC folks to find or further assert their place and power in this moment.
