Trans Empowerment Action
Educate community regarding the impacts of HB2 and how this affects people of color in NC, and promoting political and popular education for and by trans people of color. During the program, we intend to lift up the experiences of Black trans women by helping our audience think about gender justice as well as economic justice. We intend to discuss the ways in which the gender binary impacts trans folks at the level of surviving. We also intend to demonstrate the impacts that HB2 (and bills like it) has had on trans students in k-12 schools and universities in NC. We strongly believe that this programming is essential to moving our community forward with a better understanding of how HB2 has impacted people of color in NC. This event will also connect folks to resources and organizations in charlotte that seek to support and sustain trans people of color.
