REPLAY – Barriers to Accessing Justice for Two Spirit, Trans, Non-Binary and Gender Nonconforming People in Canada

November 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm CST

Free

Qualifies for 1.5 CPD hours, all of which qualify for Ethics.

This is a replay of the Oct 26th presentation for Access to Justice Week: This talk presents the results of an Access-to-Justice legal needs assessment of Two Spirit, trans, non-binary and gender nonconforming (2STNBGN) people conducted by JusticeTrans across the lands colonially known as Canada. This presentation will focus on how discrimination and harassment cuts across other legal issues, including those related to employment, housing, migration, and medical treatment. Through a series of participant quotes, we will break down how transphobia, transmisogyny, racism, and colonization are experienced at both a structural and personal level resulting in a distrust and disengagement of the legal system. To close, we will examine participants’ visions of a more just future, which evoke both immediate reform and education work, as well as long-term structural changes including the abolition of police and prisons, and the decolonization of the legal system.

Presenters: Cat Haines, Executive Director, Justice Trans. Tai Jacob, former Executive Director, Justice Trans.
