Important Meeting Called to Address Future of Trans* Group – Sunday March 30 4pm
As some of you may have noticed, the trans* group has slowly been shifting towards inactivity over this academic year. We have accomplished a lot in our 6 years of existence and now it is time to have some difficult conversations about the viability of this group. Yet, there are exciting projects in the works and many community/campus partners are slowly starting to take on trans* specific education.
The meeting is this Sunday at 4pm at WRAC (130 N. Madison Street Iowa City) to discuss two timely issues related to trans* organizing in the Iowa City area:
1) The future directions of the group and looking ahead to next year and beyond to put in place structures for other organizations to take on some of the work that we do in programming, educational outreach, and activism
2) One of our co-organizers recently met with the UI Department of Public Safety and it was a wonderfully productive conversation. We have some ideas in the works about creating more communication with that department, as well as how to get trans* folks access to the Nite Ride program.
We will intermittently have meetings over the next few months as well to celebrate our successes and plan for the future
