Portland Trans Community Town Hall says
The Portland Trans Community Town Hall is an opportunity for our local community to connect with organizations as well as each other to discuss and work towards discovering solutions to advance our movement. We will be inviting organizations to come table as well as speak about important initiatives to progress trans rights and most importantly we will have an open discussion where community members can share their fears and concerns regarding our new political climate.

We among the Trans community are worried that the greater LGB community will abandon our movement again.. (as has happened so many times through out recent history) as we enter into a period where gay rights will become threatened. We think it is important to discuss how to progress as a local community and advance as an individual movement.

This event will allow people to come out and talk, listen to speakers about our current collective situation, tips on survival, and then push people to join/ create orginizations that are trans affirming to fight for intersectional social justice.

This was an effective form of organizing during the AIDS epidemic and it is important that our community rises up during this moment of uncertainty rather then allowing ourselves to fall victim to further systematic oppression. (Allies welcome)
