What are the latest developments in transgender public policy and health? Two leaders in these fields, Clair Farley and Jenna Rapues, share professional and personal insights and perspectives on current thinking and strategies. Moderated by Mere Abrams, their conversation will address trans rights locally and nationally, including priorities for the new administration, and building trans-inclusive capacities for systems of care.
Among questions they will consider are: What strides have been made in the last 20 years and what challenges have not been addressed? What role do policy and healthcare have in addressing the startling levels of violence and discrimination faced by trans people, especially BIPOC trans women? How is San Francisco modeling what it looks like to provide the trans community with legal protections, services, and resources?
This program is occasioned by the Berkeley Art Museum + Pacific Film Archive’s current Art Wall project Affordable Housing for Trans Elders by artist Edie Fake.
