TransArkansas: A Symposium Devoted to Education and Understanding

The Arkansas Journal for Social Change and Public Service will hosts its Third Annual Symposium on November 14, 2014 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The event will be held in the Friday Courtroom in the UALR William H. Bowen School of Law.

There are two free hours of CLE credit pending approval.

The symposium will focus on the experiences of Arkansas’s transgender citizens, the common issues these Arkansans face, and the barriers to services they often endure.  The Journal takes the stance that hate, violence, and intolerance stems from confusion and ignorance. Our day long programming keeps that stance in mind and has been designed to provide a safe space to ask questions, build allies, express concerns, and increase the quality of legal services for TransArkansans.

The Journal hopes to give a voice, a face, and an Arkansas context to a subject that is often rarely explored. In addition to personalizing the injustices and discrimination faced by these individuals, the Journal hopes its Third Annual Symposium will lead to a more educated, loving environment for transgender members of our community as a whole.
