Celebrating and Defending Trans Lives in the Classroom and Beyond

Date: Friday, April 2, 2021
4 – 5 pm ET

In the first few months of 2021 alone, trans youth have been the target of efforts to restrict or eliminate LGBTQ rights. Whether it’s banning trans athletes from competing in school sports or prohibiting gender-affirming health care, these bills have brought the culture wars to our classrooms like never before and send a dangerous message to trans and nonbinary kids who have long struggled to find acceptance and understanding to live as their authentic selves.

Ahead of Transgender Day of Visibility next week, RFK Human Rights and the Human Rights Campaign have launched a new trans rights lesson plan that provides teachers with the compelling material they need to help students become better allies of and co-conspirators with the LGBTQ community.

Join them on April 2 for a deeper dive into the need for trans rights education during a virtual panel event featuring a host of activists and educators. Panelists will discuss the urgent need for trans rights education that centers and celebrates LGBTQ lives and how we can equip educators and students to become better advocates for this community through resources, empowerment, and support.
