Transgender Civil Rights Event

By Charlotte Robinson, April 25, 2019
Outten & Golden LLP & the National Trans Bar Association will host a conversation on May 9th focusing on the future of trans & gender nonconforming civil rights. The event will be held at Outten & Golden's Washington D.C. office. The event will feature a panel discussion with Sasha Buchert – Senior Attorney, Lambda Legal, Chrysanthemum Desir – Youth & Juvenile Justice Fellow at FreeState Justice, Raffi Freedman-Gurspan – Director of Extern Relations, National Center for Transgender Equality & Victoria Rodriguez Roldan – Trans/Gender Non-Conforming Justice Project Director at the National LGBTQ Task Force. Sally J. Abrahamson, co-chair of Outten & Golden's LGBTQ Workplace Rights Practice Group will moderate the panel stating, "We are delighted to support this program, the National Transgender Bar Association & the important work it does. Our distinguished speakers are on the cutting edge of trans rights work & we are thrilled to have them share their perspectives on changes in TGNC laws & the path to making society a safer & more supportive place for transgender & gender nonconforming people." For 15 years Outten & Golden has been at the forefront of LGBTQ workplace rights. One of their most recent victories secured a class action settlement for Walmart employees in the United States & Puerto Rico unable to obtain health insurance coverage from the company for their gay & lesbian spouses. The firm is equally committed to representing TGNC workers, especially given setbacks & obstacles created by the Trump administration. The conversation & reception on May 9th will take place from 6P to 8:30P at Outten & Golden's offices at 601 Massachusetts Avenue NW, in Washington, D.C with a Rooftop reception to follow. Those wishing to attend must register by April 30th. (Graphic by Richard Emmanuel)
