Transgender Awareness Week: November 13 to November 19

From the National Center for Transgender Equality: Transgender people come from every region of the United States and around the world, from every racial and ethnic background, and from every faith community. Transgender people are your classmates, your coworkers, your neighbors, and your friends. With approximately 1.4 million transgender adults in the United States—and millions more around the world—chances are that you’ve met a transgender person, even if you don’t know it.  Learn more on how to support the “The Equality Act” a Anti-Discrimination Protections for Trans People Nationwide here.
