API Equality Trans Allyship Teach-in

July 7, 2016
tags: , ,

What is a “teach-in”?

“A teach-in is similar to a general educational forum on any complicated issue, usually an issue involving current political affairs. The main difference between a teach-in and a seminar is the refusal to limit the discussion to a specific frame of time or a strict academic scope. Teach-ins are meant to be practical, participatory, and oriented toward action. We are strategically using a “teach-in” model to represent the work that must be done to advocate for our trans community must be led by us and for us. We’re hoping you’ll join us to learn, listen, and participate in what will be an engaging experience!

July 16, 9am-3pm
AAAJ-LA Community Room, 1145 Wilshire Blvd, Fl 2nd, Los Angeles, California 90017. Access info on the Facebook event.

RSVP here by Wednesday, July 13th: http://goo.gl/forms/KuYaEkX7NrqYmguE3

Join API Equality-LA for a community teach-in on trans allyship, diving into tangible ways that our communities can support and advocate with transgender and gender nonconforming (TGNC) individuals!

In a time of massive anti-transgender legislation and ballot measures, how can we increase our safety as TGNC, or rise up alongside our transgender and gender nonconforming friends and family members?

This teach-in will allow opportunities for cisgender allies to collectively identify tips and skills to become better, more supportive allies. We also welcome TGNC people to attend and participate in small and large group discussions.

Our agenda for the day includes:
– a breakdown of vocabulary and concepts related to gender identity and transgender issues
– learning more about the current landscape of the local and national legislation targeting TGNC
– specific issues that API trans people face, and
– conversations about how to make community spaces and workplaces safer and more inclusive
– opportunities to reflect on power, privilege, and oppression

Breakfast and lunch will be provided (suggested $10 donation to help offset the cost of food; no one turned away for lack of funds).

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to our Community Organizer, Andy Su, andy@apiequalityla.org
