TRANS MILITARY APPRECIATION DAY



EVENT DATE
Saturday, November 11, 2017
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

LOCATION
Center on Halsted


DESCRIPTION
In light of the pending trans military ban, this event is intended to honor and show appreciation for transgender service members, their families, veterans, and allies. We also want to raise awareness about community resources that are available as we move toward potential implementation of the ban. Two different VA installations in the Chicago area will be here to table and provide information/resources. Also, we will be collaborating with the American Veterans for Equal Rights in this initiative. We will be showing a short film about LGBT veterans and will have 2-3 speakers. Vanessa will be the host and MC for the event. Attendees will gain awareness, come together in supportive community, and demonstrate support for all who are/will be affected by the trans military ban. This is not intended to be a political event; instead, it is about appreciating and honoring trans service members and veterans while showing support as we move into uncertain and complex territory in the coming months.
