Trans Leadership Summit – 2011

 Registration is closed for this event
The 6th Annual Transgender Leadership Summit

The Transgender Law Center is proud to present its 6th Annual Transgender Leadership Summit. This one-of-a-kind leadership conference builds the foundation for community members to take action for transgender rights through informative workshops including legal, health care, organizational development and much more.

Far too often we see how discrimination affects our physical and economic security by denying us the freedom to express ourselves and fulfill our goals and dreams. The Transgender Leadership Summit provides the tools to empower transgender people to fight for equality.

This year we will be teaming up with local community leaders of TransPride to provide programming that will strengthen our advocacy muscles and celebrate our vibrant communities.
