Meeting ID: 870 3332 2959
Trans Day of Visibility or TDOV was founded in 2009 by activist Rachel Crandall. TDOV is a day to pause and celebrate the accomplishments and work of transgender and gender non-conforming folks while also continuing to raising awareness for the work that still needs to be done to achieve justice for all Trans people.
Currently in the United States there are ongoing attacks on Trans’ folks, specifically young Trans’ women. There were an estimated 218 anti-trans bills brought to state senate floors in 2021 alone.
This year, we have seen several successes in the ongoing fight for equity and representation. We celebrate and uplift Dr. Rachel Levine who made history by becoming the first openly Transgender person to be confirmed by the Senate to a federal position.
To our Trans community at Evergreen, we see you, we love you, we celebrate you, and you are not alone. And so, we offer to you our love, our support, and our commitment to continue to work towards a world that sees us as the gifts we already know we are. We hope these words from a community inspire you, uplift you, and wrap you in beauty and love.
Please join the First Peoples Multicultural, Trans & Queer Support Services tonight from 4pm – 6pm to hear the beautiful gender stories of Transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming members of the Evergreen community.
If you have a story to share, we would love to hear it. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in speaking tonight. All are welcome.
