Intersectionality and Political Solidarity 

Aaron Ellis

The intersectional solidarity put forth by the Combahee River Collective helps us look within, and explore our relation to "others" across "lines of difference" - age, race, nationality, language, religion, class, ability, etc. In this workshop, we connect our identities to contemporary political movements: what does intersectional solidarity look like today?

From Identity to Expression: Supporting Transgender and Non-Binary Youth 

Isaac Salazar - Zebra Coalition

Social transition simply refers to the process of living socially as a different gender. For transgender and non-binary youth, the ability to live and express themselves authentically has a direct impact on their future mental health and well-being. This session will provide an overview of gender identity, gender expression, and the impact social transition has on transgender and non-binary youth.
 Time: 10:00 a.m. – 11:15 a.m.
