Join the ACLU of Washington at the 16th Annual Gender Odyssey Conference in Seattle.
From the web:
Gender Odyssey Seattle is an international conference focused on the needs and interests of transgender and gender diverse people, their loved ones, and professionals who serve them. Packed with thought-provoking workshops, professional training opportunities, discussion groups, networking, and social events, this one-of-a-kind annual gathering attracts people from all over the world for an uplifting weekend of skill sharing and community building at the Washington State Convention & Trade Center in Seattle, USA.
As part of the conference’s program, ACLU-WA Youth Policy Director Vanessa Hernandez will be presenting the workshop “The Fight for Transgender Student Rights in 2017.”  The fight for transgender equality, particularly in schools, has ranged across the country in courts, the legislature, and at the ballot box.  This workshop will detail the status of this fight, using Washington State as a case study.  It will provide legal analysis of developments over the past year, and provide information about tactics and messages developed for and by the Washington Won’t Discriminate campaign.
