Trans Inclusion at a Time of Backlash
Wednesday, February 28, 2024 | 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM ET
Attacks on the transgender community have increased dramatically in recent years, including legal restrictions on bathroom access and medical care, book bans, and what the Human Rights Campaign has called an “epidemic of violence.”
Join Andy Marra, Executive Director of the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund, for a conversation with Professor Kenji Yoshino, Chief Justice Earl Warren Professor of Constitutional Law and Director of the Meltzer Center for Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging, about the state of trans rights in 2024. What has prompted the anti-trans backlash? What challenges lie ahead? And what can supporters of trans inclusion do to advance their values in the current political climate?
This event is part of the Meltzer Center for Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging speaker series and is cosponsored by the Birnbaum Women’s Leadership Center and OUTLaw.
