Location: Tyler Haynes Commons, Room 305

The Bonner Center for Civic Engagement (CCE) hosts weekly Brown Bag discussions, open to members of the campus and the community, from 12:30–1:25p.m. on most Fridays during the academic year. Each week, a speaker or small panel leads a presentation on a provocative social issue, then opens up the floor for discussion. Free pizza will be provided.

This Brown Bag will discuss the importance of Trans* inclusion on university campuses and give historical insight to Trans* life in the city of Richmond. Our speaker will also discuss what we can do as a community to help prevent the death of Trans* individuals, as they have been subjected to a high murder rate over the past five years. Zakia will talk about this correlates with her work at Nationz Foundation, a nonprofit organization providing safety resources to LGBTQIA of Color in Richmond.
