Conversations in Color: Reflections on the LGBTQIA Experience in America
About This Event
The journey continues.
A 2017 study showed that 1 in 5 LGBTQ Americans have experienced discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity when applying for jobs. When looking at the lives of and experiences of those in the transgender community, the Human Rights Campaign reports 2020 was the most violent year on record for transgender women. At least 28 transgender or gender non-conforming people were fatally shot or killed by other violent means in 2021. There are currently more than 50 active pieces of legislation being considered to disenfranchise or limit the rights of those in the LGBTQIA community.
We invite you to join our panel discussion focused around LGBTQIA experiences and the lens through which they experience social, personal, and work spaces.
