Street violence, safety and dealing with the police
March 26, 2011 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm CDT
7:30 – 9:00pm
Guest speaker: Attorney Laura Sette
Anti-transgender violence — occurring on the street, at home, at work, or anywhere else — is more prevalent than most of us like to acknowledge. We will briefly address general street safety for trans+ and SOFFA individuals (always keeping in mind that our actions are not to blame for the friction or fists initiated by others). Attorney Laura Sette will then address the challenges of if, when and how to involve the police in anti-transgender violence, recognizing that the police may be less than helpful (at best) or part of the problem (at worst). Ample time for questions and answers will allow for discussion about specific concerns and challenges.
