“Justice in Transition” will begin with a trans awareness workshop that aims to introduce audience members to the terminology and background of transgender issues and to challenge them to confront their privileges and assumptions. Three panels will follow throughout the day. The first panel, “Challenging the Criminalization and Detention of Trans Communities,” will examine the impact of policing and prison policies on the trans community. The second panel, “Challenges Facing Trans Youth,” will explore the experiences of trans young people and the ways that social and economic justice work can support their fight for self-determination, access, and rights. The third panel, “Disability Justice and Trans Liberation,” will explore the ways that disability justice informs the trans rights movement. On each panel, OUTLaw hopes to present a variety of perspectives from a diverse group of individuals.
