Flights & Rights – Transgender Access to Healthcare

Date: 
Tuesday, July 30, 2019 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Location: 
KEXP Studio Gathering Space

Join us for Flights & Rights: our free community series featuring important civil rights issues and great beer in the KEXP Studio Gathering Space!
 
All people have a right to be who they are, be safe, and live free from discrimination. Yet many transgender people are unfairly targeted and excluded in many areas of everyday life, including access to healthcare. Join us and Mattie Mooney of Ingersoll Gender Center, Danny Waxwing, Equal Justice Works Fellow at Disability Rights Washington’s Trans in Prison Project, Venus Aoki, Transgender LGBTQ advocate for Gender Justice League and Somas Seattle, and Ari Robbins, an ACLU client who was refused medically necessary surgery from Swedish Health Services about healthcare access for trans communities. Come hear from those on the frontlines and learn how you can help.
 
Doors open at 6pm with presentation to follow. Must RSVP and be 21+. Seattle Cider Company will be pouring.
