The St. John’s Wellness Center in Los Angeles reports on a transgender beauty pageant with Caitlin Jenner in an article here.
It also reports on the extreme poverty of some transgender people here.
This year marks the deadliest year on record for trans people, and with the current political climate, it could get even worse. Now more than ever is a time honor the lives lost and educate others on how to make the world a safer space for this community.
Committed to changing the wave of discrimination and offer a safe space, St. John’s Well Child and Family Center created and implemented the Transgender Health Program (THP), the only Los Angeles community clinic with a comprehensive transgender-focused health program and one of only five in the nation.
They are hosting two events focused on this message and mission:
• 2nd Annual Transgender Day of Remembrance: Friday November 18 from 12pm – 2pm
o Guests and speakers include members of the Los Angeles Police Department and the L.A. City Mayor’s Office along with St. John’s staff and transgender patients.
• Transgender Town Hall: Tuesday, November 22 from 10am-3pm
o Speakers include Trans Activist President & CEO Trans Latina Coalition, Bamby Salcedo and Adrian Acencion Martinez, Community Organizer at theTransgender Law Center to discuss daily obstacles this community faces and long-term solutions in this political climate.
