In Conversation with Milwaukee’s Equal Rights Commission (08-06-2020)
August 6, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm CDT
Join FORGE in conversation with Vice Chair Tony Snell Rodriguez and Commissioner Nathan Guequierre of Milwaukee’s Equal Rights Commission. We’ll discuss the Commission’s ongoing work supporting trans and non-binary residents, including the City’s current initiative to bring inclusive restrooms to Milwaukee. Come hear about the Commission, its recent achievements, and its role in promoting equity and protecting civil rights for all residents of Milwaukee.
ASL, Captions, and Trans/Queer-led
Events will have an ASL interpreter and AI-generated closed captioning. Please reach out with any access needs. Support focused groups are trans and queer led.
FORGE and Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin, Inclusion Health Clinic have created a series of events for trans+/non-binary community members, loved ones, and supporters, to come together for support, connection, learning, and empowerment. Participants will have the opportunity to find community, feel less isolated, and learn new skills and information.
Initiated in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many topics focus on medical and mental health issues, coping strategies, access to public benefits, links to resources, where/how to access support, creative expression, and some time to have some fun.
Sit back. Or lean in.
If you miss the live events, many will be recorded! (Recordings available at: https://www.youtube.com/c/FORGEForwardTrans)
