To start responding to the priorities and concerns expressed by participants in the February 7, 2014 Trans* Leadership Institute, FORGE is very pleased to announce the launch of WI-STAR: Wisconsin Statewide Trans* Advocacy Roundtable. The purpose of WI-STAR is to:
Network Wisconsin-based advocates who are committed to issues of trans* advocacy and/or education, fostering communication and enabling the planning and implementation of cross-jurisdictional/cross-organizational projects to advance trans* rights.
WI-STAR’s purpose is deliberately vague and broad because it is going to be shaped and focused by WI-STAR participants – in other words, you! Continue and build on what 50+ advocates at the Trans* Leadership Summit began in Milwaukee in February 2014 by signing up on WI-STAR’s Facebook page <https://www.facebook.com/groups/207937132739396/> Request to join, introduce yourself, and add to the conversations.
