On Tuesday, November 29 from 12:00 – 1:30 pm, learn more about the barriers Two-Spirit, trans, non-binary and gender nonconforming (2STNBGN) people face in Canada, with this replay of the Access to Justice week presentation: Barriers to Accessing Justice for 2STNBGN People in Canada.
Cat Haines, Executive Director for JusticeTrans, and Tai Jacob, former Executive Director, discuss the results of an Access-to-Justice legal needs assessment for 2STNBGN people. The assessment shows clearly how discrimination and harassment cut across other legal issues, including those related to employment, housing, migration, and medical treatment. Through participant quotes you’ll hear how transphobia, transmisogyny, racism, and colonization are experienced at both a structural and personal level. Those experiences lead to distrust and disengagement of the legal system.
