White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki will host a convening of transgender leaders, activists, and administration officials to “highlight the hopes, joys, and success of young transgender and nonbinary people across America.”
The convening is specifically focused on transgender youth and how systemic discrimination affects their daily lives.
“Young transgender and gender nonbinary leaders from across the country will share stories about the impact that state-level anti-transgender legislation has had on their wellbeing, their experiences of multiple, intersecting forms of discrimination, and best practices for advancing acceptance and equality for transgender people,” the White House said.
Education Secretary Miguel Cardona, Assistant Secretary for Health Dr. Rachel Levine, and Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke will join Psaki along with transgender athletes and elected officials.
The convening will be pre-recorded.
