June 25th is Trans Day of Action: March to Support Justice for All

Earlier this week, we told you about the great work the folks over at the Audre Lorde Project are doing to help build power in the Trans and Gender Non Conforming community. Now here's a chance for you to step out and show your support for this communty's right to justice.

On Friday, June 25, 2010, Trans and Gender Non Conforming People of Color and allies will take to the streets of NYC for the 6th Annual "Trans Day of Action" -- and they are calling on all activists and organizers to march with them in solidarity as they demand justice for their communities.

The Ms. Foundation has signed on as an endorser of this event and we hope that you will lend your support, too. If you can gather a group of 5 people to join the march, you can be listed as a contingent in program materials; email Jennifer at jroman@alp.org for more details on how to organize a contingent.

And if you or your organization would like to join the growing list of endorsers for this event, email endorsetdoa@alp.org for further information. Details regarding the time and place of the march can be found on the ALP website; please take a moment to read their stirring Call to Action when you can.

We hope you'll join us in supporting this important work!
