Transgender Education and Outreach

Home » Transgender Education and Outreach

Eastern PA Trans Equity Project is committed to educating the public about transgender people, the issues that affect them and how they can become allies to our community. 

Celebrating Our Diversity

Our vision is to create communities where differences are celebrated, and all people are valued no matter their sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression.

We offer a number of opportunities for transgender education and outreach where individuals and organizations can learn more through training seminars, speaking engagements, events, policy recommendations, resource guides and more.

If you would like information about engaging us to speak at your school, company or event please contact us.

Workshops, Training and Public Speaking

Community Events

  • Transgender Day of Visibility – Each Spring we develop a community education program focused on telling the stories of transgender people including our triumphs and challenges
  • Transgender Day of Remembrance – Transgender people are subject to high rates of violence and, unfortunately, high rates of homicide due to hate crimes.  November 21st is the day we remember and honor our victims so that their names are never forgotten.
