JAMESTOWN – A town hall meeting for the transgender and gender non-conforming community will take Tuesday night, Oct. 18 in Jamestown.
The town hall meeting is open to the public and is being promoted as an “open mic” event, which will give an opportunity to all attendees to voice their concerns and discuss the issues facing the transgender and gender non-conforming community.
There will also be a discussion on the kickoff of the “Pass GENDA in 2017” campaign. This will include basic information about this important state civil rights bill as well as some initial training in telling your story, followed by a discussion of possible campaign events around the state.
The event will begin with a meet and greet, with refreshments, starting at 5:30 p.m. The actual Town Hall will run from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Universalist Congregation of Jamestown (1255 Prendergast Ave., Jamestown NY).
The town hall is created, organized, and led by the New York State Trans & GNC Town Halls Project. For more information visit www.Facebook.com/NYTransTownHalls.
