Trans Day of Visibility: Affirmations and Calls to Action

TDoV is a day to celebrate the lives, vibrance, resilience, and contributions of our 2Spirit, trans, and non-binary communities, but it is also an opportunity to advocate for 2Spirit, trans, and non-binary rights.

We asked our staff and communities, as well as participants of our Meal Trans and Trans Youth Mentorship Program, to share words of affirmation for our 2 Spirit, trans, and non-binary communities.

2022 – TDoV Affirmations by The519

It is an important opportunity to advocate for 2Spirit, trans, and non-binary rights. Raising awareness and protecting 2Spirit, trans, and non-binary rights is everyone’s job!

2 Spirit, trans, and non-binary staff and community members shared some simple and key calls to action for ALL allies to adopt in our daily lives, at work and in our communities.
