Part of SRLP’s legacy has been framing trans and gender justice language and strategy and organizing for our survival through our lense of abolition, transformation, and intersectional justice! Read more about new workshops from SRLP’s Movement Building Team and see photos from our recent presentation of these workshops and more at In Our Own Voices’ “Unity Through Diversity” national LGBT POC health conference where SRLP staff, members, and TRANSFORM Fellows facilitated!

Trans Reproductive Futures – How are trans and gender non-conforming people talking about their reproductive rights and the future of our families? What are the intersections of trans healthcare, incarceration, and violence, and how do they impact our reproductive futures? This workshop/panel will include voices from Sylvia Rivera Law Project’s Movement Building Team as well as resources, language, and framing for medical and direct service providers.
The Trans Healthcare Now Campaign: Housing is a Healthcare Issue – SRLP has led a successful campaign for trans-inclusive healthcare over the last 13 years. We are now expanding our work and thinking about the role housing and policing play in healthcare. We seek to share our work around the intersections of poverty, housing instability, and community safety. In 2014, as a direct result of SRLP’s organizing and advocacy, private health insurance companies in New York State were no longer allowed to exclude transition-related care. Last December, SRLP’s campaign helped lift the ban on trans-related care through Medicaid, but there is still so much work to do in healthcare for trans, gender non-conforming and intersex (TGNCI) people. This interactive workshop examines the role housing and policing play in healthcare. We will explore the timeline of SRLP’s Trans Healthcare Now Campaign and look at its expansion as we organize around the intersections of HASA, the shelter system, gentrification, and community safety.
