Along with our friends at the Anti-Violence Project, Sylvia Rivera Law Project, Audre Lorde Project, Make the Road New York, the New York City LGBT Center, GMHC, and TransLatina Network, Bowen Public Affairs Consulting helped in the writing and release of a policy brief highlighting the needs of the transgender and gender non-conforming (TGNC) community in New York City. Solutions Out of Struggle and Survival was released on November 20, 2017, and we’re working on making its recommendations reality through government relations work and political education in the TGNC community. New York City Council Speaker Corey Johnson said publicly that he would work with the coalition that put the brief together. This is an exciting release, and exciting work, and we’re honored to be a part of it.
And we’re pushing it into policy.
