Speaking Up: Naming a trans experience at the intersection of race and class
Workshop with Ali Mateo Belen
Friday, October 11
Murray-Aikins Dining Hall (second floor)
You are invited to a conversation to explore how structures impact the experiences of transgender and non-binary folks. We will come to a shared understanding of terminology such as gender, intersectionality, and race. Through storytelling and engaging conversation, we will explore how structures impact and shape our communities. Recognizing the effects of structures will allow us to create more expansive, welcoming and, ultimately, more healthy environments for folks of all identities.

Their work focuses on healing trauma, building relationships, and practicing community so that folks can safely expand into their full humanity and mission.
