State of Transgender Policy 2013

December 2, 2013 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Attitudes, policies, and laws affecting transgender and gender non-conforming people and our families are rapidly changing.  To help you keep up, FORGE has prepared a 22-minute webinar/recording that looks at the current state of many of the policy issues that most affect trans people and families, including:  employment, health care, identification documents, housing, education, the military and veterans, violence against trans people, taxes, aging, incarceration, and trans-specific cultural competency training.

“Policy” can sound boring and irrelevant, but if you pee, access health care, drive, work, need housing, dream of gender-related surgery, or hope to grow old…it affects you!  The following two videos were developed to recreate the presentations at the September 28, 2103 Milwaukee FORGE social support and information meeting.  Learn about the phenomenal policy strides the trans community has made over the past few years, and where we are going next.  Never before has a minority group made so much progress so fast!
