BTAC 2014 Call For Workshop Proposals
"If you want to learn or impact our Black Trans Community, you need to be at events where we gather and talk about our issues" (Monica Roberts).
The Black Trans Advocacy Conference 2014 (BTAC) is one of those rapidly growing and becoming eagerly anticipated events that is extending an invitation for trans and gender non-conforming individuals and our family, friends and community allies to gather, educate, learn, build and grow together in unity.
The BTAC conference theme this year is 'One Earth. One People. One Love.' and will take place from April 29-May 4 in Dallas at the Doubletree Campbell Center.
The call is now going out for workshop proposals for this 3rd Annual Black Trans Advocacy Conference.
The conference mission is to provide thought-provoking and stimulating forum opportunities for educators of all disciplines and experience levels. BTAC also seeks to share practical ideas and best practices that advance the Black Trans Advocacy Mission of equality, advocacy, empowerment and love that are particularly focused on ending discrimination in education, employment, housing, health care, religion and legal justice faced by trans people in African American communities.
If you'd like to be in Dallas for BTAC 2014 and think you have a workshop proposal that will fit this conference and the audiences it is targeting, submit it as soon as possible.
Hope to see you in the Lone Star State in April.
