The purpose of the event is to facilitate a conversation between parents, their children, and teachers on how best to include, respect, and protect trans youth in schools. Given the current political dialogue, harmful legislation, and violence against the trans community, we want to create a safe space for the sharing of experiences, concerns, and visions of parents of trans children and trans individuals.
School administrators, counselors, and legal experts will take the stage to discuss treatment of trans children in schools, legal rights, and procedures. The discussion panel will consist of true experiences and stories of trans children and their parents in the context of US schools. The panel will also include updates from past panelists.
