Featured Session: Trans Texans Need Us: Hear From the Front Lines

Mar 13, 2022

10:00am – 11:00am CT

The State of Texas recently announced its intention to try to investigate and potentially take transgender children away from their parents, and block them from lifesaving healthcare. CPS has started to go into families’ homes. This is part of a coordinated national effort to erase LGBTQ people from classrooms, sports, daily life, and their own families. A panel of activists and Texans living through these attacks will discuss why this is happening and how anyone can help build a world where transgender people are safe and able to be themselves.
