NCTE’s Mara Keisling to be a Featured Guest on MHP Show Discussing Trans Issues

Melissa Harris-Perry Show
Sunday, April 15, 2012
11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. EST

Join us for a Twitter conversation at @TransEquality
Hashtags: #nerdland #trans

From the first appearance at a trans event by a sitting Cabinet Secretary to the incredible list of policy victories we’ve achieved in the past year, trans policy is now firmly part of the political debate.  Of equal importance is that now, the conversation around the country is moving in our favor, symbolic of  important cultural progress in our movement.

Capitalizing on what seems to be a trans moment, Mara Keisling will join the Melissa-Harris Perry Show on a nationally televised panel discussing the movement for transgender equality. Mara will join other trans advocates to examine recent trans policy victories and current challenges.

But to help her talk about these policies, Mara wants to tell America what kind of discrimination trans people face at all levels of employment. And the stories she tells could be yours. Fill out the form below to tell us about a time you faced gender identity discrimination when looking for a job, in the hiring process, or while you were on the job.

Even if Mara doesn’t have time to share your story, it will help us in our national advocacy work.  No identifying information will be shared outside of NCTE: we only need to contact you if we use your story.
