On November 8, Leeway Foundation will host the launch of a document called TransForming Inclusion: An Organizational Guide -- a resource for peer organizations, funders, and cultural organizers that provides tools for inclusion and affirmation of trans and gender nonconforming people.  The guide includes best practices (pronouns, bathrooms and other access questions, etc.), examples of organizations that have undergone the process of transforming their mission/vision/work, and other introductory and intermediate level information about trans affirmation and inclusion. 

Part of the launch event will include a moderated panel discussion featuring leaders who have demonstrated a commitment to trans inclusion, and will share with an audience of funders, nonprofit organizations, and community partners some critical insights from the document and why it is extremely relevant at this time. November 13-17 marks Trans Awareness Week, and Leeway hopes this event will continue to amplify this ongoing national conversation.
