The Texas Transgender Nondiscrimination Summit is rapidly approaching, and this year will be coming to the Dallas-Fort Worth area for the first time.
The 7th annual edition of this event will take place July 31-August 1 on the UT-Dallas campus in Richardson, TX .
Ever since the first event happened on the University of Houston campus back in 2009, the TTNS has been pushing for trans inclusive policies in Texas school districts, colleges and universities.
It's no accident that ever since the first TTNS event was conducted, the number of school districts and Texas based colleges and universities with those policies in place has steadily increased, and the training being done at the Texas Transgender Nondiscrimination Summit has played a role in it.
And ever since I moved back home in May 2010, I haven't missed one.
In addition to the seminar blocks, this year's keynote speakers will be Dr. Stephen Sutton, Ph.D., Assistant Vice
Chancellor University of California at Berkley and Heather Snow,
Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs at The University of Texas
If you're in the Dallas-Ft Worth area, in easy flying or driving distance or just wish to attend the event, the TTNS staff, volunteers and their UT-Dallas hosts would love to have you there. You can register for the event by clicking on this link
