The 21st Annual Conference on Race Class Gender and
Ethnicity, Gender Identity and Justice: The Role of Law in Defining and
Advancing the Rights of Transgender People, considers the role of law in
transgender issues. The Conference will examine both the positive advances as
well as the stalled progress in the law to recognize transgender rights. To
explore these issues, the Conference invites practitioners, academics,
advocates, and local community members to consider how the law has both
supported and failed the transgender community, and what steps can be taken to
define and advance the rights of transgender individuals. Conference topics
include the legal treatment of transgender individuals in the law, the
complicated relationship between medicine and law for transgender people, and
legal regulations in daily life that specifically impact the transgender
community. We hope to explore how best to achieve meaningful reform to better
serve and support the transgender community.
