Calling All Trans and Gender Non-Conforming Youth

Three Rivers Community Foundation wants you to lend your voice to GLSEN Pittsburgh’s Trans* Project!

We are very excited to take the next step in our mission to help better the experiences of gender nonconforming students in schools across Southwestern PA. A key part of developing resources is to hear from students willing to participate in a discussion. This discussion will focus on identifying issue areas in K-12 schools and how to proceed with designing the content of our workshop that we will use to train educators and school officials on how to work with Trans* and Gender nonconforming students.

Date: Wednesday July 16, 2014

Time: 4:00 PM
