TRANSFORM California

Earlier this week, I got to be in Los Angeles for the campaign kick off the Transform California campaign put together by Transgender Law Center and Equality California. As a born and raised Californian, this campaign means so much to me because I have faced job discrimination, health care discrimination, and bias in academic institutions as a transgender person. A big part of why I left California was because of transgender discrimination and lack of legal protections in the workplace for people like me . I played take your mom to work day and it was a great day of healing and organizing for transgender rights with my mom.  The Transform California campaign is committed to making the Golden State a place where trans folks can feel safe, and live happy, healthy lives free from discrimination. The campaign has built a strong coalition of over 30 organizations, learn more about the campaign below and follow my site for campaign updates!
