A meeting is scheduled for Wednesday June 1, 2016, at 4 Palmer Street in Plattsburgh.

The event is planned as a “fact-finding mission” to better understand the needs of these communities and to create connections among transgender and gender non-conforming people, and their allies, advocates and supporters, in order to spark interest in education, outreach, and advocacy and build a legislative agenda.

Members of the Transgender, Gender Non-Conforming communities, their families, supporters and allies throughout the greater Adirondack – North Country region are being encouraged to attend.

The June 1st Plattsburgh meeting will begin with a welcoming reception at 5:30 with the actual session from 6 – 9 pm.
