Five years ago, the Williams Institute created UniTy to support the health, research, and rights of transgender and nonbinary communities. Since then, they have raised money to support organizations and to fund the first gender identity question on a large government survey, the California Health Interview Survey.
This year, the Williams Institute is partnering with the TransLatin@ Coalition to raise money and awareness at UniTy for a groundbreaking survey of transgender and nonbinary people in Los Angeles County. This survey will provide much-needed information about health, housing, economic and employment status; experiences of discrimination and harassment; and the resilience, activism, and well-being of transgender and nonbinary people in Los Angeles County. The results will be used to inform law, policy, and services locally, and serve as a model for similar efforts around the country.
This event is for people 21+ only.
