The Trans Health Advocacy Summit (THAS) took place August 10th to 12th on the beautiful campus of Western University in London, Ontario. It brought together 35 trans community members and 3 allies that were motivated to be there and participate. We mapped out trans health care issues across the province and strategized around these. Workshop topics included: Legal issues and resources; advocating for health care; how to do policy work; social media advocacy; and self-care. Also, members of the Trans PULSE team presented on current findings from the project.
THAS was a great opportunity for trans community members and allies to come together to network, share ideas and experience, and take away knowledge for indviduals’ advocacy work. We believe the summit was a success and want to thank all of the delegates for participating and creating such an energized atmosphere.
