The Threat to Trans Rights and the Public’s Health
Please note that this is an external event, led by BU's School of Public Health
The past few years have seen the proposal and enactment of a range of laws that challenge the human rights of the LGBTQ+ community, and particularly transgender people. This calls on public health to affirm a central truth, that there can be no health without respect for the dignity and basic rights of all populations. This conversation will address the current attacks on transgender populations, the active threats to those working to support these populations, and how we as a public health community can continue to promote the health and rights of transgender people.
